Our mission is to reduce the pile of plastic waste ending up in our landfills every year. We are doing this, beginning with where we study, at Victoria University. We have adapted the ‘Precious Plastic’ machines and infrastructure of a shredder and extruder to repurpose plastics such as bottles, lids and containers into new products such as 3D plastic filament. This will then be able to be sold back to the University, creating social enterprise.
In the future, we have scope to broaden the sale of products, stretching outside of the university and
into local schools, governments and industry. Through this project, we aim to create social change
and initiate the process of repurposing plastic that has life left to give.
