Funding AND IMPLEMENTATION of the pilot project

- Professional photos and videos

- Social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn)

- Newsletter


- A total of 5 clean-ups

- Together with the support of many donors, sponsors, local partners and the residents of Siladen Island, we were able to remove more than 3 tonnes of plastic and other waste* from nature and put it through the recycling process (upcycling).

*250 rice bags 50L = 12-15kg average dry weight = 3-4 tonnes of waste.

Educational material for children

Pilot Plastic Recycling Plant - First Brick

- Pilot Plant: After months of work together with Ocean Hero and our partner Marlon Kamagi in Manado, we were finally able to get our shredder and extruder to produce the first plastic bricks recovered from the sea (Siladen Island).

- Technical study: Our volunteer Marina Seger helped us with her master thesis "Plastic Upcycling. A holiystic study of a sustainable plastic Brick" to help us understand the mechanical and physical properties of the plastic brick.
