Plastic Shed is all about bringing people from different walks of life together, on an equal footing, to act on a shared problem - plastic waste.
We know that plastic waste is a big issue for lots of people, no matter our age, race, gender, income, abilities or religion. In fact over 80% of us are concerned about it in the UK.
Plastic is an amazing material that we can reuse and recycle locally. We're not just talking about putting your plastic in the right bin - we mean actually turning it into something you will find useful again. By reducing the amount we waste and reusing it for our own benefit we can help create a more sustainable, greener and cleaner society.
We aim to share the resources that the local area need to reuse plastic waste for their own benefit. And we want to make sure our activities and resources suit a whole range of abilities and time commitments. This includes everything across the whole recycling and up-cycling process from collecting and cleaning plastic, right through to designing and making new things from the waste.
We make sure that all of our activities are sociable and practical and are a chance for people to better understand their neighbours and make new connections in their community.
We believe that by working together as a community to reuse plastic waste for our own benefit, we become better connected, happier, healthier and stronger.
We hope that reusing plastic waste locally will soon become a part of everyday life in Stockport.
