Precious Plastic EcoBeasts Request

We hope you all enjoyed seeing our machines at work at EcoBeasts CAD day, we really enjoyed meeting you all. As you know we collect plastic waste across the city and turn it into new products, making waste use-able again, this not only helps to clean up our city but also helps develop a circular economy.

We have made a great start but now need your help!

We need to collect lots of plastic waste, at the moment we are using bottle tops and need as many as we can get. We have made some posters for you to display at school. As EcoBeasts, think about how you can best collect these tops at your school? How can you make sure everyone know about it? Can you collect from family and friends as well? Can you use this collection to raise awareness about the plastic problem?

NOTE: Please be careful not to encourage more people to use more plastic bottles in order to collect lids, reusable is still better! It can be hard to make these changes all of the time, so by re-purposing your lids with us, you help make less waste.

When you have lots of lids ready to be collected, please message us on here, you can comment on this blog post and we will come and pick them up.

Precious Plastic are excited to be spreading the word of plastic re-purposing at Bangkok Design Week from 26th Jan to 3rd Feb and will need as many bottle tops as possible. If you want to see the machines in action again, please come along!

Thanks for your support EcoBeasts!!

Inspired by Ocean Pollution: Amazing Year 5 Author Alert!

This talented young author has written a fictional book, ‘Bobo’s Adventure’, to promote awareness and conversation about the problems our oceans are facing.

Great to read to your class as a stimulus for discussion.

We would love to present Bobo’s adventures a touching story inspired by the whale BoBo who was created by the SANG foundation to spread awareness on ocean pollution. Bobo in the french language can be literally translated as ‘pain’.

The story is written from the point of view of BoBo the whale, who is becoming more and more unhappy about all the ‘clear thingies’ that are invading his home. As the story develops we can see how much BoBo appreciates the help of ‘Jonathan’ a human who wants to help BoBo and all the sea creatures keep their habitat free from plastic.
