Meet our amazing 2018 Just Start IT and Young Innovator of the Year Award Finalists PLASTIGO.
From over 200 teams in the Just Start IT High School Entrepreneurship program PLASTIGO were selected from 100 teams in semi-finals as one of 10 Finalists.
PLASTIGO is one of three Finalists in the 2018 YIOTY Awards.
PLASTIGO is a mobile gaming platform for good quality games which encourage active recycling of PET Drink bottles into Greenbatch bins in schools and supermarkets which are collected and turned into 3d Printer Filament donated to local schools. PLASTIGO players get in-game rewards and vouchers for their recycling efforts. The bins integrate IoT sensors developed by PLASTIGO and Greenbatch in partnership with SteamLab YStop and UWA.
These inspired young people are set to make a big mark in massive markets - the emerging plastic waste as commodity, waste management and of course gaming.
