Opportunity @ The Green Shed Pembrokeshire
We are a group of like minded individuals in Merlin’s Bridge, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales – all concerned with reducing waste. We have set up the Green Shed Project. Please see our twitter page @thegreen_shed. We are opening a new re-use building in the summer of 2018.
We are excited to let you know that there will be a plastic recycling studio within the new building. We have funding for plastic recycling equipment and we are looking to offer the space to a group interested in starting up a community social enterprise.
The space will be offered at an affordable rate to help get the project up and running. We also have a shop within the building where the group can sell the re-created items that they make.
Are you interested? We welcome local designers, engineers, anybody ‘local’ with the experience and skills to build the equipment, and waste conscious community groups or individuals keen to help raise awareness about the importance of reuse. We want this to be a project that will involve our local community in reducing waste, and getting involved in the reuse of plastic.

Hi. What an exciting project! I work at Swansea University on a project that addresses use of plastics by developing skincare packaging from plants, and also commoditising negative value waste through enhanced recycling and manufacturing processes. I would like to explore opportunities to use this space to network with like-minded people, and to design and make recycled skincare accessories. It looks awesome!
