Resources - Plastic Recycling

For information on plastic recycling, check out Precious Plastic, an open source global movement that encourages people to see plastic as a valuable resource. Our project, Remix Plastic was inspired by a Precious Plastic back in 2016. In the time that we have been working in this space we have learnt a lot and want to share our knowledge with others. The resources below are compiled by us and contribute to the shared knowledge and work in this area.  

Plastic Recycling Health and Safety (Blogs)

These Health and Safety resources are being made available because we have spent a lot of time compiling them for our project and want to make it easy and accessible for others to stay safe while working on plastic recycling. As we are releasing a series of tutorials on plastic recycling we feel it is our responsibility to provide best practice health and safety.
