We want to beat a Guinness Record

02/03/2020 at 12:03

Hi guys!
This is Lore&Miguel from Precious Plastic Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain) and we have developed a new product that can transform tons of waste into art ūüėČ
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>Some weeks ago we posted on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/preciousplasticgc/) our new product: Mosaic Tiles! We called it ‘PIXEL ART’ and, together with some students from Proyecto ARBol (https://www.proyectoarbol.org) ,¬†we intend to create a mural made exclusively by shredded and injected plastic from unusable writing instruments, such as pens. As we live in an islands, this is a huge problem. Since 2015 they have collected 2.5 tons of this kind of waste, but each year 50 tons are sold just in the Canary Islands… :(</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>We are now looking forwards to participating in¬†GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS¬†as¬†`THE WORLD LARGEST MURAL FROM WRITING RECYCLED¬†MATERIAL¬ī¬† in our aim to encourage the recycling of writing elements in the world. After several attempts we still haven‚Äôt received a favorable reply…and this is the reason why we are writing you, as a community: we have the certainty that with Precious Plastic‚Äôs support, Guinness would reconsider its decision.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>We already have the collaboration of important organisms such as¬†Terrecycle. the¬†University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria¬†and the¬†Government of the Canary Islands,¬†but your help would be greatly appreciated.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>The mural, with a total of 70m2, has been designed by students of the Engineering and Industrial Design Degree of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and will consist¬†of 12.480 pieces that would be assembled by 120 participants. This event will take place on March 13th, 2020.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>For any clarification or more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>Thanks in advance.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>Best regards.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>Miguel & Loreto,</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>Precious Plastic Gran Canaria Team</p>
