Read before you help
Hi there, Thrilled to see you want to help us pushing our projects forward. We use this part of the community to post challenges where we directly need your help for our projects. It can be anything, some feedback, a logo, web development, test users, suggestions, really anything. We’re just getting started and are still figuring it all out. Stay tuned!
Sorry for the late response, I just joined this forum today 😉
Your motor looks perfect, but 1730RPM is way too fast. You might need to add a reductor on your motor to reduce the RPM to aproximately 60~70RPM
Just a suggestion, if it is possible, it would be good to be able to do a member search by country/state/providence/city on the website so that people close to each other can make contact in real life and do projects together. For example, I’m living in Cincinnati, Ohio in the United States. I’d love it if I could get together with my fellow members in Ohio and make some projects happen. Just a thought! 🙂

probably not most three phase motors are industrial you also need a gear reduction with it to slow it down. check with a local electrician as voltages change from country to country.
I am a student from Hong Kong. I have been planning to go to Maldives with some of my friends as you did from your last video visiting the local school and Thilafushi there, so as to further promote the message of urgency and possible way out of plastic usage.
However, we are having the trouble of being unable to contact the recycling factory that you have been for our eco-tour. As don’t have not much connection as a student, I would like to ask for your favor to give us there contact, so that we can follow your step and actually do something in promoting the eco-message from our trip to our community.
It would be our honor to help you and help us all in letting more and more people what the real conditions we are in and what the way out we can take in the future, but not lagging from these difficulties. We appreciate your help. Thank You.

Hi David, Simon from the UK here. I’ve been picking litter for years and have always wanted to find a simple plastic bottle shredder. I found your site yesterday. Brilliant. Well done, and thank you!
David, I am keen to set up a beach plastic recovery system. I have entered Richard Branson’s #VOOM competition. The ‘People’s Choice Award’ gives a £10,000 cash prize for the business idea most voted for. (Voting ends 24th June).
I wonder if you would be interested in a bit of collaberation?
I would be very interested to share your ideas. I will share them anyway! But wonder if you would be interested to help me get votes for my project? Might help us all move forward with the plastic waste recovery we need to do Worldwide. Interested in your feedback if you wish to give it.
Great work. Will follow with interest, Simon.
