Do you remember that there were journalist children in the yellow pages of history? It is written that mischievous wanderers in the streets with newspapers in their hands were shouting. everyone was paying close attention to see what new news was available. Maybe your age is enough, maybe not enough to remember that image, but that image is always in a corner of our minds. For years, conscious people, organizations, states and non-governmental organizations have been shouting, like those journalist children, that recycling is recycling. Moreover, on every platform that our age allows!
There are those who do not hear these calls, there are those who take these calls seriously and those who do not, of course. But those who think about our world will certainly not stop shouting. Sources show us that the history of plastic goes back to 150 years. Plastic, the first human product manufactured by Alexander Parkes in 1862, is used in many areas today and provides us with convenience.
Would there be a museum of plastic with a history of 150 years? What can be exhibited in the museum? Isn’t the museum a place that tells about centuries? Of course, many more questions can be asked. However, we are faced with a wonderful project that is shouted and shouted for recycling and whose importance is taken to be explained. The Plastics Museum, the world’s first 100% recyclable museum, was born with the idea of being disassembled on International Recycling Day.
For 9 days, the visitors of the museum learned about the vital role of plastic in our lives and the importance of reuse and recycling in order to get the most out of these materials. Visitors of all ages and political figures have visited the museum and it is a great pleasure. The walls, floor and ceiling have been completely dismantled for reuse and recycling. Pieces in the “I used to be a museum” collection will be created with recycled plastic and will be featured on the website. The Plastics Museum remained open to the public for nine days. Created to be recycled, it has given thousands of visitors a new perspective on plastic, ensuring that reuse and recycling gain importance. Located in Madrid, in Plaza de Juan Goytisolo, in front of the Reina Sofia museum, the museum attracted a lot of attention.
The main purpose of the Plastics Museum is to explain the importance of reuse and recycling in making the most of these materials. To demonstrate the necessity of plastic, visitors have seen items from the healthcare, communications, construction, food industries and essential items for sustainable mobility displayed inside. In addition, visitors were able to understand that the problem arose if their waste was not managed well or used irresponsibly. The Plastics Museum closed its doors in an event sponsored by Mario Vaquerizo, to coincide with World Recycling Day on May 17.
