I'm looking for creative people in the material industry. Who has an idea how to make degradable plant pots for a nursery that last for a longer time and don't disintegrate when watered regularly?

Hello, 

I am looking for any links to machinery that can grind plastic (PP) into 1 inch or less pieces for recycling.  Does anyone have any ideas on companies or a machine. 


thanks

Hi, do you want to make plastic pellets with a plastic granulator? My friend Lynn can support the plastic pelletizer machine if you want, and his website is: https://www.recycle-plant.com/ Maybe you can find the solutions there.

Hi Christian, you can search for fishing nets in our solutions page to view all the companies that recycle old fishing nets from the ocean. Some examples are Seaqual and Econyl that specifically focus on creating fibre for fashion and apparel using old fishing gear. Feel free to contact them through Ubuntoo. You can also draw inspiration from a few solutions that use old fishing nets to make phone cases and eyewear.

Hi Eric, in the short term, the best way to improve the sustainability of the wraps is to use recycled LDPE or PP. And to set up a collection and recovery system at your construction sites for the used wraps to be sent to a recycler.  

In the long term, we can explore suppliers that can try to match the current wrap protection specs using biodegradable or reusable materials if that is what you prefer. I will reach out to you directly to take this conversation forward.
