Creating a springboard for a locally led recovery and re-imagination of the North of Tyne
Students and people who live in coastal areas of Northumberland will perform plastic litter picks, of both LDPE and HDPE plastic. This plastic will them be brought back to CLV and shredded into small pieces of plastic (this machine has already been made). The plastic will then be formed into sheets and vacuum moulded into whatever form we desire. The aim is to produce sports equipment, school equipment and furniture from the recycled plastic, and then give to community members or sell said items in order to use the profits to fund other plastic projects within the community/school or donate to environmental awareness charities. No profit will be made from this scheme. It is a community project as parents, care givers, community members from outside the school will all be participating in this project.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Plastic is destroying our plant. If we don't recycle it effectively it will be our legacy. Recycling effectively means taking the plastic out of the environment and putting this material to good use in schools and homes. It will engage many different parts of the community and see the school kids engage with some of the most important issues of their times.
