Repurposing Plastic with Beyond Bins
About the Event
INTRODUCING BEYOND BINS
We introduce our humble solution, Beyond Bins — a small start to combating plastic waste. The campaign has been supported and endorsed by MESTECC in line with Malaysia’s latest roadmap towards Single-Use Plastics.
With Beyond Bins, we were able to provide underserved communities with an alternative income and means to improve their livelihoods, through assisting us to breathe new life into the plastic waste, by creating new products from it.
THINK OUTSIDE THE TRASH
Most plastic waste that are thrown away on a daily basis are EASILY RECYCLABLE with the right tools. At Me.reka, the tools built are mostly open-sourced, supporting a collective recycling effort.
Through this project, we were provided with the opportunity to work with big brands such as Nestle, Adidas and Petronas to raise public awareness on plastic recycling and consumption.
