What if the tons of plastic littering every beach on Earth could become the bowls and building blocks of tomorrow?
The incredible organization Precious Plastic has been on a mission since 2013 to make plastic waste valuable. They are giving value to plastic waste by giving people easy ways to create their own small recycling and manufacturing centers.
These centers are helping local entrepreneurs convert waste into products that people can use and sell.
Check out one of their awesome projects in the Maldives!
Precious Plastic is a thought leader on the cutting edge of a grassroots movement to make plastic waste a thing of the past. They are focusing on the potential of making plastic waste valuable and recycling a source of income.
Sometimes it takes a shift in our perspective about things to make a change.
Projects like this one in the Maldives are creating spaces that can help the world come up with new ideas and tackle a major problem like plastic pollution!
