We, the PlastISH team at the International School of the Hague, are looking for someone just like YOU. You long for a green future, you want to reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up polluting our beautiful Earth, you want to make a difference. And that’s why you’ve come to the right place!
At PlastISH, our aim is to have a complete production line consisting of all four machines to recycle our school’s plastic waste. This way, we’d be able to create products at a relatively large scale and have a greater impact on the community, both at ISH and in The Hague – possibly even at an international scale later on!
Simeng spent two years building the plastic shredder for her Personal Project but we cannot afford to spend a total of six years on the remaining machines and that’s why we’ve decided to buy them. Problem is, this needs money…
Our team is split into designers, engineers and business & marketing who have so far been working together to:
– Shred different types of plastic
– Make improvements to the shredder
– Develop molds
– Create a website
Just so you can be sure that your money will be used wisely, here is the budget plan:
Extrusion Machine – €1260
Injection Machine – €400
Compressor – €700
Special Price for the 3 machines – € 2150
(the above adds to €2360 but we have received a discount)
Shipping cost is around €500 for 3 machines
Remaining €100 will be spent on molds
Total = €2750
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would simply like to say hi 🙂
Finally, please help us spread the word! Tell your friends, family, colleagues, teachers, students, the bus driver, the lady at the cashier – everyone!
The more support we get, the sooner we can start making a difference together.
