We, the PlastISH team at the International School of the Hague, are looking for someone just like YOU.

You long for a green future, you want to reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up polluting our beautiful Earth, you want to make a difference. And that's why clicked on the right news story!

Please DONATE by clicking the link DONATE


At PlastISH, our aim is to have a complete production line consisting of all four machines to recycle our school's plastic waste. This way, we'd be able to create products at a relatively large scale and have a greater impact on the community, both at ISH and in The Hague - possibly even at an international scale later on! Simeng spent two years building the plastic shredder for her Personal Project but we cannot afford to spend a total of six years on the remaining machines and that's why we've decided to buy them.

Problem is, this needs money... Our team is split into designers, engineers and business & marketing who have so far been working together to: - Shred different types of plastic - Make improvements to the shredder - Develop molds - Create a website Just so you can be sure that your money will be used wisely, here is the budget plan:

  • Extrusion Machine - €1260
  • Injection Machine - €400
  • Compressor - €700

Special Price for the 3 machines - € 2150 (the above adds to €2360 but we have received a discount)

  • Shipping cost is around €500 for 3 machines
  • Remaining €100 will be spent on molds
  • Total = €2750

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would simply like to say hi :) Finally, please help us spread the word!

Tell your friends, family, colleagues, teachers, students, the bus driver, the lady at the cashier - everyone! The more support we get, the sooner we can start making a difference together.

Update: We're thinking of creating a limited edition product as a small token of appreciation for all of our supporters!
