My daughter had a summer job in a well known take away coffee shop here on Milos... One day whilst visiting the shop, I noticed them throwing away largish plastic yogurt containers and various square plasic containers. They were fine and absolutely reuseable!!!
Many thanks go to the Gregory’s & Coffeeright. here on Milos that allowed my daughter to gather everything that was reuseable, and bring it home, on a daily basis. I now have a HUGE collection of cleaned plastic containers which I plan to upcycle into useful objects. The yogurt containers in particular are amazing and I am currently working on upcycling them into bags...yes bags and I will make them funky and amazing if it's the last thing I do!!!
That presents another problem too, of couse........is the Greek market ready to buy upcycled products??? I'm a small business and I have to pay tax and insurance....
If a company such as this existed in Greece-maybe it does and I just haven't found it yet- I believe that businesses such as Gregory’s & Coffeeright. would indeed recycle their unwanted plastic etc.
So, as we need a company like Terracycle in Greece, I'm sending a virtual invitation!! Meanwhile .....any advice about how to market upcycled products in Greece?
