There is this open source project, when I saw it for the first time I wanted to participate and be part of it. But in my country plastics are not as big of a problem as in other places and there is not much space to have a workshop dedicated for that.

Nevertheless this is one of the most awesome concepts I have seen, and it just needs some dedication.

https://preciousplastic.com/

Precious plastics is decentralized and you can earn by doing something very useful for the environment.
All you need is dedication, and action.

Example 1
Create a collection point.

Example 2
Pick up plastics and deliver them at a shredding facility.

Example 3
If there is no shredding facility near you, create one.

Option 1
If you have no money to create one, start a flipstarter or kickstarter.

Option 2
If you don't know how to do these things, or how to get involved, take care of community, connect with people and be a hub..

Example 4
Start a machine workshop to build plastic materials. Using extrusion, for example.

One use of the recycled plastics

You have the schematics of the machines and you can buy or build them yourself.
Learn and share.

edit: discord channel here https://discord.com/invite/cGZ5hKP

All open source, all waiting for you to do something about the place where you live and your community.

Don't forget, be safe.

edit2: @vevo after discussing how to start, starting a community point, that becomes the main information and co-ordination hub for people who want to help out, is the way to go. Here https://preciousplastic.com/starterkits/showcase/community-point.html

Yes, I'm actually writing another article about that. In the meantime you can get acquainted with that website, you can see what you'd be able to do.
What would you do? I think finding a space is the first step. (or talking with someone that builds machines, fixes cars, or works with metal and working with them!)

For you to help me start. How is the recycling in your country? Where do you live?
Are there container bins for recycling? Do people recycle in general?
What is the cost of a chair (example) and bread and kilo of rice? (to see the viability of making and selling objects)
These are some things for assessing possibilities.

Plastic is a necessary evil that we have to live with. There is this incredible person from India who is using old plastic to make roads. I can't think of any better use case than this. Check this out! https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jul/09/the-man-who-paves-indias-roads-with-old-plastic

$ 0.00

Thanks for that link. The difference here is that making the roads with that old plastic is industrial scale level, it can be made by companies or governments if it's good. I guess though that they would be paying little or nothing for that plastic material.
Here you actually use the raw material at a smaller scale, and have the possibility to make objects with it, so you can incentivize and pay people to collect plastic. Cleaning efforts of neighbourhoods maybe can be made from it, as well as small economies.

Anyway, it depends on the particular situation. More thinking about the viability is necessary.

That's correct. This is something people can do at their own level and don't need an industry to do. This is more grassroots level stuff which obviously will have a much bigger impact.

What is the cost factor on this one? How cheap is this compared to the regular single use plastic? I am sure these are more expensive than the regular one. Also all the current plastic that's in circulation, what do we do about that? That's why I said we have to live with it.

You said necessary evil. So I think it's not necessary. What has been done has been done, of course.
I don't know the prices. I see it in some places.

Also all the current plastic that's in circulation, what do we do about that?

That's not something for me to figure out. I don't have that power.

That's not something for me to figure out. I don't have that power.

That and because of the price, it's a necessary evil. If the plastic you mentioned was cheaper, we would not see it anywhere in the world right now. It would be 100% gone completely off the stores.

The cheapness is just because some governments misalign the incentives.

Well you can’t really compare fossil fuels to education as in your example link right? Although that is true, the fossil fuel industry also brings a lot of jobs along with it. So it’s more complex than that. Also all plastics will get the same subsidies regardless of whether they are in the current form or degradable forms. The degradable plastics are just more expensive to make.
