We are only recycling the type of plastics that is used for bottle caps (HDPE), at the moment. We hope to expand to use other plastic types in the future.

Process of recycling

Once we have collected the marine debris from our beach clean ups, we separate the plastic bottle tops from the rest of the debris as we use these for our recycling. To make sure there are no defects while creating our products, we manually clean each individual bottle top of any sorts of dirt or grime still on it. Once they have been thoroughly cleaned, we put it in a machine that shreds the plastic bottle tops into fine pieces. We then put these shredded pieces into a machine which heats them to their melting point and pushes it out of a nozzle into a mold
