ONE DAY BLOGPOST SAMPLE
Title: Making Cool Things out of Plastic Trash
(please don’t call your blog post OneDay 2018)
For OneDay, I chose to work in the Precious Plastic group. I feel really strongly about sustainability and the overuse of plastic and I am excited we have plastic recycling machines at ISB now.
Here is my sketch from one of our OneDay pre-planning sessions.
First, I collected bottles from my house (Polypropylene- PP)
Second, I got help with shredding the plastic.
I measured 380g of the PP and got help with the oven to heat it to 160 degrees C for 30 minutes
I then clamped down the bowl and let it cool outside.
I learned a lot during OneDay. I learned about the different types of plastics and the process that needs to take place to go from plastic trash to a new/beautiful product. I also learned that any black in the plastic chips will overpower most other colors, so next time, I would use less. This process also takes a lot longer than I thought it would, but with more practice, I think I can make things more efficiently. Also, as you can see in this picture, my bowl is cracked. I think I can fix it by reheating it, but I’ll have to do it some other time, since I ran out of time during OneDay.
