Precious Plastic Pin Badges
Check out these awesome precious plastic pin badges. They are made from 100% recycled plastics found during either river cleans, lake cleans, beach cleans or collected directly from resorts, dive centres and restaurants. Each pendant contains approximately 2g of plastic.
When you buy these badges 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 sharks and turtles or just marine life in general then please buy one!
The Precious Plastic Method
The Precious plastic pendants were 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 lovely shark and turtle pendants. 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 Islands were sponsored by American Express Malaysia through their corporate volunteering Serve Together initiative.
