We talked about how Precious Plastic community around the world is drawing people’s attention to recycling plastic waste activities. Also we showed our machines that we use in our work and demonstrated various recycling techniques.
During the workshop participants made cardholders and earrings from shredded bottle caps for themselves.
Cardholders can nicely hold the Tallinn Card, isn’t it?

This week Vivita hosts the city camp “Näita keelt!” and yesterday Jegor demonstrated the possibilities of recycling to the participants of the event.
Jegor told kids about the problem of abundance of plastic in everyday life. And showed how we can reduce using it and recycle disposable things such as bottle caps or bags into something useful and beaufitul.
The camp participants went through all the steps of plastic recycling: they washed it, sorted it by color, shredded it using a special machine. And, of course, made several products (carabiners, earrings, pendants, key chains and stylish wallets) on their own using injector and melting press.
