Precious Plastic pilot #3 in the Maldives

We made a plastic recycling container on an island in the Maldives 🌴 in collaboration with @parley.tv

After two years of designing, building, tweaking, pivoting, shipping and everything that comes with pushing the limits of plastic recycling in January @davehakkens Charlotte and Jerry went to Male and trained locals.
The recycling container is now a research center to find solutions for ocean plastic 🌊
