Plastic Beach Party is a community-driven effort to introduce plastic recycling to Aruba. Started through an open design thinking workshop, a wide range of community members engaged to brainstorm and prototype new products, experiment with working with plastics, and envision an organization to facilitate plastic recycling. Starting with the Precious Plastic machines, the mini-factory was collaboratively built by volunteers, and recycled over a tonne of plastic in it’s first year.
