After working for many years with ecobricks (plastic bottles filled with rubbish), the founder of Project Planet Clean Up realised the need to find a way to work with the global issue of rubbish in a larger way. After researching machines that are able to chip plastic and melt it down into construction materials, it seemed that this was a way to help environmentally, socially and economically.
By paying people by weight to bring cleaned and sorted plastic to the machine it can then be transformed into a saleable product. This will clean the environment while creating a social enterprise to assist communities most in need.
Plastic Wood is lightweight, water-resistant, and prevents deforestation. Once proven, we can replicate around the world, to bring a solution to one of the global tragedies we face.
