Maker Faire Bay Area 2023

Peninsula Precious Plastics

Home: California, United States

Our primary activities will be sorting and cleaning of collected plastic (specifically HDPE), shredding the plastic and then using Precious Plastic equipment (injection or compression moulds) to make objects participants can walk away with. We will also offer a plastic bag crafting project where participants can use simple tools to make sturdy bags and wallets from plastic bags. Participants will learn about the global Precious Plastic community and how they can participate at home or start a group of their own. Each weekend we will host a local artist or entrepreneur who is using these same processes and equipment to create products from waste plastics.
