Precious Plastic Melbourne is a finalist for a Community Champion award in the Premier's Sustainability Awards 2022 – Circular economy innovation category.
Precious Plastic Melbourne is at the forefront of a grassroots micro-recycling movement in Australia. From their closed-loop plastic recycling facility in Nunawading, Precious Plastic Melbourne is designing and producing small-scale recycling equipment to manufacture functional products and create a valuable resource from what was once considered waste.
The innovative, family-owned enterprise empowers community groups, businesses, and schools to manufacture their own products, actively seeding circular eco-systems across the country. This circular economy approach is not only vital to the reduction of plastic pollution, but also creates strong economic, social and climate benefits.
