Our services!

In general, there is a lack of recycling knowledge in our community. Sustainability in plastics means designing products with lifespans to be reused or recycled. It also means promoting alternatives to single-use plastic, connecting communities and consumers with recycled products, describing current supply chains for recycling waste, and demonstrating our own recycling machines with the hopes of inspiring others to create from their plastic waste.

Meet the urgent need of recycling with innovative community approaches. Although recycling is widely practiced in the Columbus area, we implement and encourage behavioral closed-loop recycling. We also engage with community recycling and cleanup efforts.

Using industrial machines, we process the plastic we collect and create new products. Currently, we have made machines based on the Precious Plastic designs and have utilized machines provided by Integrated Systems Engineering at The Ohio State University.
