Plastic - waste or valuable?

Unveiling the Hidden Potential of Plastic Waste - A Global Imperative

Dive into the dark reality of plastic production, a colossal contributor to emissions, and a persistent menace that takes centuries to decompose. The challenge of plastic waste is exacerbated by its daunting recycling process, often culminating in the incineration of collected plastic, generating heat/energy for various industries. Alarming predictions suggest that by 2030, the volume of plastic in our oceans could surpass that of fish.

But here's the game-changer!

Did you know that the majority of plastic is not a lost cause? It holds the potential for transformation through local, small-scale, and manual recycling efforts. Think about your old ice cream packages, forgotten toys, and empty shampoo bottles—they can all embark on a second life as chic buttons, stylish combs, exquisite jewelry, and charming flower pots. Yes, even the seemingly impossible, like black plastic and discarded face masks, can find a renewed purpose.
