Our Journey

plastic recycling
plastic recycling joined Hackney Spaces3 weeks ago

My name is Bogusha and together with my friend Sharif we are setting up a plastic recycling business which main ethos are to recycle plastic, help the environment and create new objects out of waste, like home decor or furniture. We are following the preciousplastic.com scheme and we are building the machines (shredder, extrusion, injection and compression) at our own expenses. However the process is quite expensive and we are struggling with finalising it and we'd love to get help from you, in exchange we would be happy to use our knowledge and hands-on experience to educate other people, in schools for example, and encourage them to recycle more; we also would like to engage the community to give us their plastic waste instead of throwing it in the bin where only a small percentage gets recycled by setting some collection points. I am an industrial design graduate with green design focus and my friend is an engineer and handyman.
