This presentation outlines how the research and exploration has shaped my question into one that encompasses how localised, small scale, design initiative can work to combat plastic waste in the community. With a set mission statement I can begin to envision and sketch what the product will actually be and look like.  

The two exemplars listed here and in previous posts have also shown me that I can tackle soft plastics as well, as they have shared their manageable, small scale processes to transform the soft plastics into solid form. 

In the coming weeks I will be attending clean-up days with the two groups listed in the presentation slides. This will address what plastics are being collected from the environment, in what quantity and be my first experience with working out the steps to the material collection and processing system. From there I will then begin to experiment with melting and forming new shapes with this waste material.
