NowHerePlastik is an environment-friendly venture focused on the recycling of plastic materials, the majority of which would end up in the ocean, otherwise. The project provides the installation of collection platforms in various cities, inside of which anyone will be able to deposit his plastic waste to be recycled in return for a charitable donation. The retribution will be in form of cryptocurrency, depending on how much plastic the participant deposits. The cryptocurrency will be provided by the platforms through a digital screen in different ways, based on the user experience (novice or expert), namely:
– a ticket to be utilized as a gift voucher – a paper wallet – the sum gets credited directly to the user’s wallet address – by QR codes scanning through own smartphone or other hardware or even on a bracelet with an embedded chip
This project will allow the creation of purchasing power generated by the recycled plastic, taking advantage of a system that involves both cryptocurrencies and a classic POS circuit. The plastic will be recycled through the creation of 3 different categories of products: – Objects for the revaluation of public spaces in urban areas (benches, tables, recycle bins…) through a 3D printing system – artistic creations – objects for design and modern furniture in addition to daily consumer goods like ropes, fabrics (Dacron, BoPET) or sails.
