As you may know, Flint, Michigan is currently experiencing a water crisis. Currently, their water is polluted with high levels of lead, contaminants, and diseases that is making their faucet water undrinkable without the use of a filter. Due to this crisis, over 59,000 citizens must depend on bottled water to cook, clean, and bathe. This is causing an overconsumption of water, which is leading to an overwhelming amount of plastic bottles within the neighborhoods.
Currently, only 10% of the city is recycling their plastic. A company that is not based in Flint, Michigan, is being contracted to pick up the plastic bottles. This is a wasteful use of monies allocated by the government.
Here’s where precious plastic and its community comes in. We are in need of the machines to shred the plastic and convert it to the 3D filament.
Can anyone help? Anyone interested in being paid to build a shredder to reduce the recyclables?
