Shredders Suite: Why a shredder?

Nowadays the biggest problem of Mother Earth is pollution. Urban waste and all types of plastics are invading our planet. Our goal is to stimulate people to recycle more, empower each of us to reduce our footprint of CO2 by reducing the volume of the waste produced. Plastic and Aluminum are strong, waterproof, lightweight and cheap. However, they have a big flaw: they’re not biodegradable and therefore must be completely recycled. Plastic has little weight and lots of volume, out products help reduce the volume of recycling materials up to 80%, this way less trips to the recycling centres are needed saving CO2 for the environment. Such a reduction is only the first phase of a real, complete industrial process, where municipalities and citizens must work side by side.
