Dear Dave , greetings! First I must say that I found this project (at least) awesome, and I would like to help/participate in some way. I am Brazilian , industrial designer, and teach Fundamentals of Polymers at the University FUMEC. At the moment , I’m still learning how to deal with this site .
Hi Eliseu, I’m Brazilian too graduated on Materials Engineering. There are many brazilians here.
We could make a brazilian topic

Hola a todos, I think this is a wonderful proyect and inspired people to right things. Im from México and live in Cancun And one of the problems here its the trash we get in one of our protected zone from the sea. Me encantaria empezar a desarrollar este proyecto y crecerlo para poder atender toda la basura de los hoteles que ya la separan pero no hay quien la procece.
Great idea, simple and direct, i’m drawing technician , working with cnc machines, i’m trying to make a cnc machine from recycled material . I would like to help . I’m from Portugal , sorry for my bad english :/
I have no idea how to work this internet thing. But does this motor spec look like it should work?
Mauricio, from Mexico. I’d like to help translating into Spanish. We all know English works very well, but I think having different languages could make it even more Global.
That’s about it.
At least website and subtitling for videos.
Great Project, if I can, I would be happy to help. I am not a an engineer, just someone with a passion for our world environment. My country Zambia is a little landlocked African country with a big problem as far as waste is concerned. Sadly, little is being done about it. I am trying to do something to help reduce solid waste, hence came across your project. We as a team will try and see how we can perhaps try this locally! All the best guys!
Hi, My name is Federico and I’m trying to develop the injection machine.
Could someone tell me in specific which components works the best and where to find them?
Thanks in advance
I can help in digital (analysing analytics, social media, etc) and translating content to portuguese. We can also produce newsletters and research other channels to reach more people.
Veel succes met de projecten!
Ik hou van je initiatief 🙂
Hi I’m Sergio from Argentina, I would like to contribute subs in spanish for some of the videos. Best regards,
Hii raja i also from india and having the same problem of limited resource…
Am willing to do anything I can to help this project. Can do some web design. Would love to help anyway I can.
Thank you so much for this project. I’d like to help. As I see the need for translation and I know Spanish and Portuguese, I can help translate subtitles for the videos, I think this would help immensely spread the project! 🙂
I am Carla, from the Netherlands, would like to be a test-user. Can’t wait to start with this. It looks like really nice to do and helping the environment is something I really like to do so… live near Haarlem.
I’am Marcus from Boca Raton Florida, I’am ready to built this shredder,
I just like to know if I can purchase the blades from you, or actually
everything you had in the box on the video.
Thank you Marcus
Teo from Mexico City, I think that maybe a washing plastic machine could be a great idea to offer mor value to our finishing recycled products, I have a few Ideas to make a smaller version of a prewashing-washed by friction machine for the flakes.
That`s my proposal to help, and I support the idea of having subtitles in the videos and languages in the websites.
Dave, you are doing a wonderful job, and this really inspired me a lot.
I am interested in bring the machine into Taiwan. Pls let me know how to proceed it. Thanks and wait for your reply

Hi Dave, First congratulations on your project. I have cruised all over the world as a boat builder and believe me Plastic is everywhere ! Your small recycling units would be an incredible asset for remote islands (like Fanning island) and a incredible way to clean up the ocean as a lot of plastic ends up on beaches.
For the past 30 years I have witnessed the deterioration of the oceans. It is a tragedy unfolding at lightning speed.
My question is this : Are you thinking or already producing and or selling the recycling units as per your website ? I am on twitter, my favorite way of communicating. I will keep posting for u.
All the best Virginia
Good to see you are all interested in Plastic recycling!
We don’t sell the machines, we we suggest to find a local machine builder in our forums.
Maybe in the future we will sell machines… –But probably not since we don’t like shipping them all over the world, preferably they are build somewhere close to where you live
Thats why we share all the information you need to get started yourself here.
Love the project , I am in Byron Bay , Australia , anyone out there in Australia ? I am sure I can find someone to build these machine around here , I also speak French if you need translation , can do graphic design , video filming and editing , I do work with people with disability and I will love to create some workshop and create some job for people with some disadvantage to make a difference in their life , this re-cycling plastic project can be the answer , thanks Dave for initiative .
