The education program guides students through the basics of plastic types, uses and life cycles are covered, the waste crisis associated with single-use plastics and how we can solve the associated problems this brings. Participants will learn the story of plastic, the journey of a lid, and be introduced to sustainability and circular economy principles.

Education sessions will also cover the various recycling processes, micro-machines involved and will conclude with a hands-on experience. Through this experience, students get to follow a lid from collection, washing, sorting, shredding and remanufacturing into a new finished functional product.
