Hey everyone, Recently, our local newspaper printed an article about waste issue that has been going on in my home country, Indonesia. Even with the governments’ program, there are still tons and tons of trash produced each day. So I thought, how can I personally help solve this problem. AND THEN, I found Precious Plastic. You have no idea how excited I got. This amazing community, and Dave, is very special to me eventhough I’ve just been here less than a week, so of course I had to start right away. Not only this could be a potential business, but also help save the environment AND provide jobs for people. But that’s a long shot, still a learning newbie trying to figure out stuff now. Long story short, here are some of the things I’ve attempted to use and make. Materials : HDPE, LDPE Problems and questions : - Smoking band heater only after 2 runs, then it died. Overheated perhaps ? - Sometimes, my dough was hard to mould when I used a conventional oven at 220 C. Why is that ? - Raw material collections (plastic bottles still have a price here, even for a very small amount.) Strategies ? I don’t mind buying them off of trash collectors, but I would like to avoid stepping on some ‘parties’ toes. - How do I approach businesses into being responsible about their waste ? P.S : Everything was pressed manually by man-power, using 2 overlapping things.
