Plastic Upcycling Headquarters

Thanks to our supporters at Salt Island Fish & Beer (that’s owners/operators Emily & Eric), we were able to recently acquire @preciousplastic recycling machines built for us by The Sea Monkey Project, based in Malaysia. We now have the capability to shred, melt, and inject melted plastics into molds that produce durable, long-lasting products while providing education on the promise and limits of recycling. We use recovered #2 and #5 plastics from our Hard-to-Recycle-Center and from beach cleanups as our ‘raw material’. We produce planters, coasters, and marine animal pendants that are given as thank you’s for a suggested donation at the Tybee Farmers Market to raise funds for more clean ups and our programs. If you’re in the Savannah area and would like to see our workshop, send an email to tybeecleanbeach@gmail.com to make arrangements!
