Hi, this is Danny.
I would like to meet all Edmonton members in person somehow someday. Any idea? 🙂

I like coffee and tea. Perhaps we could set up a meeting at a local cafe?

Danny, Braden
I will be in Calgary until 27 Dec.
We can set a cafe meeting after that.
We have lots to talk about.

Great to have this place to keep in touch with other people interested in getting a workshop started in the capital region.

I agree that in the new year will be best. We can iron out where we are now, and how we can move forward.

So I have made a decision.
As of today, I have procured the web addresses for the following

preciousplastic-canada.ca  and .com.

I would like to do something similar to what http://www.preciousplastic-usa.com did with their website.
We will need to find out the fonts used and to obtain the videos and links to link back to DaveHakkens site for credit and reference of course.
We will need some help with the site development and content uploading.

From this website we can also have an ecom presence to promote and sell equipment we manufacture from here in Edmonton.

I also want to use this as a platform for funding applications for us and other groups in Canada.

Please comment..

Hey there,

Thanks for contacting me about a group in Edmonton.  I’ve been looking at revisiting this process.  Look forward to being involved.

Great to see some of the people who I reached out to today have commented and are interested in the project here!

The website they used is fairly straightforward and simple. Having details explaining what the community is, but also providing some insight regarding local (municipal, provincial, national) details can be good pieces of information for visitors.

Leveraging the website to sell product outside of our immediate market is a good idea. Looking through the Bazaar on the Precious Plastics website, there seems to be a large hole when it comes to individuals or groups selling products, or machines within Canada.

I like the idea of a meetup.

I also noticed a lack of options for Canadians in the Bazar. I think the best bet would be to make our own machines here.

Ok let’s make a meetup happen! Use the Doodle link below to tell us when you are available for a meetup at Dirtbag Cafe. We will select a time and date where everyone can make it. Let me know if I need to add other dates or times to the poll.

I have been speaking with Taylor in Red Deer who recently just finished building the injector. She actually just left Red Deer and is now in the Netherlands working with the Precious Plastics team for the next few months.

She offered if we may be interested in buying the injector from her. It is currently in storage in Red Deer. I have asked her what she would want for it, and if she had any molds for it as well. If the price is right this may help us get up and running quicker.

Hi everyone,  I am Leo from Mississauga, Ontario. I had a déjà-vu moment about recycling plastic (yes! it’s true..Gerry McGuire style) and Google search promptly showed me the Precious Plastic website and all the stunning achievements of Dave. I am still digesting through the info. I am so glad to be part of this global initiative. I am not yet sure where I want to go with this. Hope you guys will help me chart a course through some discussions.

Happy to see you were able to find your place over to here Leo. I actually have a friend moving to Toronto who is interested in this project as well. I can see if I can get her on here and reach out to you.

So,Dan and Stephen, looks like either Saturday or Sunday evening. I think we can drum up brief meeting notes as well for those unable to attend.

So Dirtbag Coffee or other location on Saturday works for me as well.
Starbucks across from Grant Mac as well. There are good tables in there.
3-6pm

I don’t have any real preference between the two. Daniel, do you? I can do 4pm as well.

I don’t have preference for the meeting spot. But if I say either is fine, it’s not helping the decision making process so I would like to say – the Dirtbag Cafe since everyone has already voted on the place initially.

Hello fellow Canadian precious plastic followers. Graeme from Chatham ON. I was in the platics industry for over 20 years, mostly automotive plastics. I am also interested in the recycling of our waste plastics in to other usable items. Looking at ways to produce plastic lumber or fence posts, as someone had already mentioned in one of the forums.
Interested to know if there are any other subscribers in my neighborhood.
Hope to hear from you.

Did you ever figure out a good way to produce plastic lumber? I’d like to make simple 8 foot long 2 X 6’s at our local recycle center.
Thanks,
Darsie from Alaska
