Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Robert came to Bocas several years ago and has had his hand in many projects throughout this time. Robert spearheaded the Bocas recycling program in 2012, where he and some volunteers, and a few part time workers, made a positive change in the cleanliness of the islands beaches and town. In a short amount of time, it was staggering to see the amount of recycled materials being removed from the garbage, and saved from being burned or buried in the only one landfill. He estimates “that he had over 1 million bottles that was accumulated, during the period of one and half year he collected the bottles”. The recycling program was a breath of fresh air for the islands residents and many tourists visiting annually.

Message from Robert

People have changed. The world has changed. If we got to a point where we need to drink water in plastic bottles, we surely have changed! Humans have now reached an increasing volume of 7.3 billion people on the planet. If each one of us drink only one bottle a day, we are looking at 2.6 trillion bottles a year. Where are they? Where do they go?

Why are developed countries of the world, working so hard to recycle a small percentage of the volume of plastic bottles being discarded, when the developing countries which are greater in volume, have not yet realized what is happening to the planet, with the immense plastic problem we face. 

Unless developed countries organize, unite, and educate the developing countries, and give them an incentive to pick-up and reuse the plastic bottles already discarded, we all loose!

I want the world to realize that we can reuse plastic bottles in many other applications such as:

  1. Home insulation
  2. Rapid temporary shelters after disasters
  3. Buildings for animal’s on farms
  4. Building swimming pools
  5. Water catchment tanks
  6. Septic tanks
  7. Agriculture water ways (land drainage) 
  8. Commercial warehouse construction
  9. Barns
  10. Roads

Let's educate the adults of tomorrow, not to do what our generation did to our planet, regarding the plastic spill.

Say NO to single use plastic bottles
If you say YES, than drink it, and build it



Cleaning the planet, with Cell phone time, a realistic DREAM?

A true fact is that even in developing Countries, almost every one has a cell phone. A large quantity of them don't have available minutes inside. 

Let’s imagine that every McDonald’s located in developing Countries, offers a McPlastic’s Reverse Vending Machine where peoples can recycle PET plastic bottles, in exchange for cell phone time.

The fact that there is always a McDonald’s near you. You can imagine the volume of cell phone users that would now recuperate plastic bottles to exchange them for cell phone time. Even if it's only a few seconds per bottles? The machine could emit a receipt with a code that can be entered in the phone for credit.

The cell phone time, could be sponsored by Dupont, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Nestle, and all the other single use bottlers, in collaboration with different cell phone companies in each participating Countries of the world?

What a fantastic way to educate, and give incentive to individuals of the World, to pick-up single use PET plastic bottles, and exchange them for cell phone time….. “TIME for TIME”

Say NO to single use plastic bottles
If you say YES, than drink it, and build it


Food for thought...

Please share this idea, who knows, the idea might reach the right peoples?
