Moreover, Trash for Trade is a plastic upcycling social business model. The vision of this community is to reduce plastic waste through an upcycling process. It is a social innovation idea developed from an Open Source community called “Precious Plastic”.
They collect plastic trash, divide, categories, shred and make upcycled remedies out of it. And sell it to the market. Through that, they can reduce plastic pollution and make other people aware. The simple and strong brainstormed idea brought pride to the team and our university.
