There is a lot of development and awesome things being made by the Precious Plastic community. Mould, machines, products. We spot updates all over the place. Youtube, twitter, instagram, websites and mails that people send us. We use an internal (slack) channel to share new updates, however they are interesting and relevant for everyone here so we will do it here!

This topic is to share all (cool) updates from our members around the world. You can upload your own big updates, but also feel free to collect and share updates from others.

We are Up Plastic team from Finland and Uganda.

Our local team in Makerere University is progressing! They are working hard and making pavement tiles to place them in a school in Katanga, the suburb of Kampala.
Good job guys!!!
Fun fact: do you see more than 100 PET bottles in the picture or the tiles? Because we see both!

I also just wrote a post on our journey and whole story behind the workspace we established in Makerere University. Link bellow:

Reinforced injection machine from @talleresferica in Spain. They needed more power to fill up all the little details with plastic in their impressive sunglass mould.

From a 24 year old kid (paul) in US. Not sure how they do it, but food and recycled plastic is always tricky because its hard to trace where all plastic comes from. Doable, but you just need to be careful. That said, still good process and learning.  Specially interesting to see the website they made for this one product. Good way to communicate https://www.earthwormproject.online/

Maputo Tile Mural

 

I’ve been working with a group based in Maputo, Mozambique. They have the PP injection machine and I have made them moulds to produce tiles. The city council have approved a tile wall in one of the main avenues and it is going to be an environmental awareness mural of 3000 plastic tiles covering an area of over 20 square metres. Each tile is 10cm x 10cm and they have recycled over 100,000 bottle caps, nearly 2000 PET bottles, and also polystyrene take-away containers to make the 3000 tiles. The wall is currently being prepared to attach the tiles and the unveiling is planned for later this month. I will post an update when it is complete.

 

The tiles are based on the ‘Metro’ design with bevelled edges, but are square rather than rectangular.
