We are working to create a plastic recycling business based on the foundation of a locally based short-stream process. We want to be able to collect plastic from the local community, from residential, business and the grassroots organized cleanups by Clean Gloucester and Seaside Sustainability.
Ultimately we would be wanting to create multi-use commodities that we could then sell to the local market. ie: totes, containers, phone cases, etc.
Our longer term goals, beyond the scope of the grant are to create a sustainable business that shrinks the carbon footprint created by the transport and large scale process of single stream recycling.
