One local businessman team is aiming to take recycling to the next level in Cayman. Douglas Cameron and Paul Lankford the owners of The Lodge, said they are planning to create Cayman’s FIRST plastic recycling facility to bring awareness to the community and help the environment all around. Mr. Cameron uses discarded plastic here on the island to create new products such as plates, business cards, and other small plastic resources. “This is starting out as an art project hosted at our business but once we proof concept we plan to register an NPO and shoot for the stars setting a whole recycling facility. ” Says Paul Lankford who is a 6th generation Caymanian and excited to be working towards making the up and coming plastic recycling project a success.
Though Mr. Cameron does not have all the equipment needed to set up the facility just yet he said he has enough to get started. And he’s already started testing the waters by making 3D filaments. Both Mr. Lankford and Cameron stressed they need the community’s help to keep trash off the beach and put their plastics to better use.
If you’re interested in dropping off your plastics to the lodge, they will soon be taking all types of plastic, not just the usual plastic one and two. However, they are not ready to receive your plastic but they are excited to show you what they are up too and help you learn how you can play your part in saving our little island and even the world.
