Recycled Plastic Coaster
Check out these awesome precious plastic coasters. They are made from 100% recycled plastics found during either river cleans, river cleans, lake cleans, beach cleans or collected directly from resorts, dive centres and restaurants. Each pendant contains approximately 4g of plastic. When you buy these coasters a percentage of your fee goes back towards conservation efforts like our Perhentian Marine Research Station to conduct coral restoration and beach clean ups or our riverway projects around Malaysia. If you want to give a great gift to someone whom you know loves marine life then please buy some!
The Precious Plastic Method
This recycled plastic coaster was made using the precious plastic recycling machines. The Precious Plastic machines were made by David Hakkens who built the machines and released their blueprints to the world in the hope that people replicate his machines all around the world. The machine shreds, melts and then injects the melted plastic into a mould, making these lovely coasters. Ingenious! The machines use type 2 and 5 plastic which are things like straws, plastic bottle lids, most shampoo bottles and many food grade plastics used for cups and food containers.
Fuze Ecoteer run Precious Plastic Workshops for schools and corporates. The machines in the Perhentian Island were sponsored by American Express Malaysia through their corporate volunteering Serve Together initiative.
