The Beginnings ...
Our first project started on the small island of Atauro, Timor Leste. Thanks to ‘Barry’s Place’ and a number of other donors and supporters, we were able to co-fund the production of the set of precious plastics machines in Indonesia, and have them shipped to Atauro.
Our team head to Timor Leste in January 2020 to check on the project and incorporate lessons learned into design and project improvements.
We are currently raising funds for a new set of moulds for the Atauro site. The current set of moulds are helping the community build tiles and buckets ... useful items that turn waste plastic into a useful products and stem the import of manufactured plastic.
The moulds are expensive, and we are looking to raise $750 to have a mould built to enable the manufacture of fishing reels for the local fisherman, and for sale back into mainland Dili.
Pending the establishment of our kickstarter initiative, your can support this program through purchase of a MIIR Keep cup from Adventure Safety ... the cups retail for $15.95, with $10 from every cup progressing to our goal.
