PLA Disintegrator / trashcan

PLA Disintegrator
PLA Disintegrator

First of all, we collect PLA and other plastic products separately. Wanting to decomposition PLA with eco-friendly ways, we use solar panels to create appropriate condition to decompose it into water and carbon dioxide. Planting plants around trashcans which collect PLA, we can use the produced water to irrigate plants. Besides, plants also help turn carbon dioxide into oxygen. At the end, when the plants mellow, they can be used to make PLA, which creates a eco-friendly cycle.
