In our Eco Popular Laboratory we promote the revaluation of plastic waste through the manufacture of 4 plastic recycling machines – shredder, injector, extruder and compressor – associated with the international Precious Plastic project. With them we can extend the life of these wastes by turning them into 100% recycled and 100% recyclable products.
The work of our eco-popular laboratory includes the development of various research, innovation and community development projects in alliance with educational institutions for the democratization of appropriate and appropriate technologies. Thus, we have collaboratively created recycled plastic test tubes for the study of their mechanical properties, a material optimization protocol, improvements in the original design of the extruder, among other developments.
ECO ESCUELA POPULAR
Popular school for people over 18 years of age who live in the San Bernardo municipality and who are interested in facing the social and ecological crisis that is currently being experienced.
In this school participants will learn about 16 socio-environmental problems recognized with the community, about the system that has us in crisis, pedagogical tools and eco-trades (where it will be taught from a theoretical and practical point of view). Said eco-trades are: Creative reuse (reuse of textiles and thermofusion of plastic bags), Agroecology (“Garden design”, “plant seed and substrate”, “transplantation and cultural management” and “organic harvest and recycling”), Carpentry with reuse of pallets and Conscious Body, my first territory (Natural medicine, natural hygiene, healthy and conscious cooking).
