UniPlastic

UniPlastic

Uniplastic is a social enterprise that wants to create a more sustainable world through plastic recycling. This plastic recycling is carried out in our own workshop, which is located in the old building of Unitas. In this workshop, five people with a distance to the labour market are currently working on shredding and melting down the collected plastic. The concept is simple: we collect plastic that would not normally end up in the plastic recycle stream at small companies and student associations. This plastic is then processed in our workshop into new products, such as furniture or waste bins. These products are then sold in the webshop. In this way we create daytime activities that play a social role and we make the world a little more sustainable.

At this moment we are leaving the starting phase of our project and the production of 100% recycled products can start. We collaborte with Zideris and Wageningen Schoon to collect and produce the plastic. Zideris is a home and workplace for people with a distance to the labor market and Wageningen Schoon is a company focused on a cleaner Wageningen. We meet every two weeks to discuss the future of Uniplastic. With Enactus we are mainly involved in thinking about the growth of the company.
