About this Event

Embark on a journey to address the plastic challenge in our communities.

In this workshop, you’ll learn more about the entire recycling and upcycling process, get hands-on experience with a 3D pen and create objects from recycled plastic sourced right from our households. Join us in making a positive impact, one plastic object at a time!

You will leave this workshop with valuable knowledge and insights into the importance of plastic recycling and how it can contribute to a cleaner environment. Together, we can make a difference and work towards a sustainable future.

As part of her master’s degree thesis project, Natalia Fuentes Navarrete is on a mission to combat the environmental impact of single-use plastics. Her focus is on High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), the plastic found in common household waste, such as milk bottles, shampoo containers, and soft drink lids. Using cutting-edge 3D printing technology, Natalia turns this waste into something useful.
