Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

Plastics play a significant role in the environmental, societal and economical dimensions of sustainable development. It is an inexpensive, lightweight and durable material, which can readily be moulded into a variety of products that find use in a wide range of applications. As a
The project methodology represents on degradable plastics that do not harm the consumer and the environment, so that the project takes into account the moral and professional aspects, so as to avoid all plastic devices used for medical purposes such as injections as well as avoid the use of drums of toxic chemicals fear of serious health effects. The project also takes into consideration that the products of plastic recycling are far from toys. Therefore, it was limited to the manufacture of electric hoses using modern machines that are characterized of producing many shapes and sizes of hoses.
The project's quality reveals in the step of manufacturing that will go through all scientific and technological stages in order to ensure the quality of the product. The process will be carried out from beginning to end in the same place under the supervision of extensive experience in this field. In addition to value - added that appears in washing and drying step before shredding process, which will enhance the competitiveness of product, especially in the process of manufacturing, which facilitates the process of forming the product, while it is that many of the workers in this area and competitors do not do this stage and evidence of the speed of some damage Plastic products are traded in the market. Therefore, the project is considered the strongest and the first competitor in the market.Therefore, plastic recycling is one of the most important method of treatment and processes that reduce environmental damage caused by waste disposal ways such as incineration, which causes diseases and serious damage to the environment as a whole in addition to material and economic effects

Who are the beneficiaries? (1,000 characters)

The project is located in Toobas Governorate in West Bank in Palestine, which lacks of implementation such plastic recycling projects. This is the first project in the governorate. It will be implemented around West Bank cities. The location is relatively far away from the population and has been tested to maintain the public health. As well as the availability of water, electricity, ease of movement, transportation and access to customers. of course, here, the beneficiries are all habitats and environment

How is your idea unique? (1,000 characters)

- The project idea is the first of its kind in Toobas governorate and there is no competitors.
- By applying the comprehensive quality system:
Access to a product of high quality that matching the criteria and standards of the product obtained from the new plastic.
-Reduce Plastic waste aiming to increase production
-Clean- up the plastic waste thoroughly and remove all oils and grease
-Stay away from plastic waste that causes diseases
-Regular maintenance for all machines and equipment
-Periodical maintenance to ensure industrial safety procedures
-Determination of final product testing in terms of dimensional review, thickness measurement and product weight using modern technological tools
The project also takes into consideration that the products of plastic recycling are far from toys. Therefore, it was limited to the manufacture of electric hoses using modern machines that are characterized of producing many shapes and sizes of hoses.

In 3-4 sentences, tell us the inspiration or story that encouraged you to start this project.

great interested to follow the developments in plastic recycling process and reusing and even the manufacture of a new product through the Internet. He follows the site of Aversol, a company that developed and used technology to build green houses. Moreover, he is very interested and has a strong desire to prepare, implement and develop an environmentally friendly project and the exploitation of everything that is small and large may harm the environment and could be brought a benefit to societ

Please explain how your selected topic areas are influenced, in the local context of your project (1,000 characters).

It is noticed that the world's yearly consumption of plastic materials has increased from around 5 million tons in the 1950s to nearly 100 million tones today. In the meanwhile, while we have used such enormous amount of these products, we also produced enormous plastic waste and we could not ignore the long term effects on the human and their immoderate uses are serious, giving us grave concern about our environment, where plastic waste can not decompose in a short time and its terrible effects remains on the environment for a long time. These plastic wastes, if accumulated, placed the environment and agriculture land at greater risk of pollution.Therefore, plastic recycling is one of the most important method of treatment and processes that reduce environmental damage caused by waste disposal ways such as incineration, which causes diseases and serious damage to the environment as a whole in addition to material and economic effects at the same time.

Who will work alongside your organization in the project idea? (1,000 characters)

All traders and companies that need products that are recycled from plastic through the project "electric hoses"

Please share some of the top strengths identified in the community which your project will serve (500 characters)

the project is friendly environment
 - Waste disposal in a healthy manner without harming the environment
- Utilization of plastic materials as raw materials at affordable prices and at the minimum cost that can be sold at competitive prices
- Produce products not dealt with directly by human to avoid health damage
- Creating jobs

Geographic Focus

Toobas governorate in west bank, Plalestine

Dear Abeer - One of the participants, Erin, referred me to a link to a company called Precious Plastics - try to look them up on the internet. I am quite sure that if you and them link up, you can make sweet music. If you do not manage to find them, come back to me, I will dig up that link. And lets continue what we are starting.

Sincerely
David Svarrer
