What is the problem you found?
How might we reduce plastic pollution in our community?
Customer / Problem
Our customers are people who care about the environment in our communities but don't know how to help. They are people who are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. They often change their habits by avoiding the use of unsustainable products and packaging such as plastic. It would be great to help them to also use repurposed plastic for other practical uses
What Is Your Solution?
Plantics is a community program that trains individuals to make decorative and practical plant holders from repurposed plastic. Participants of the program pay a token premium on the sale of their products to the program. The program relies on the community for the donation of discarded or used plastic as raw materials.
