Poly enables local, community-led plastic recycling by manufacturing systems that allow individuals to recycle plastic without the need for municipal infrastructure. Our systems consist of a shredder machine that shreds down plastic into small pieces and an injection moulder that takes those pieces, melts them down and shapes them into new products using interchangeable moulds. We work with operators to create a social enterprise around their Poly system, creating products that are relevant to their community, designing job opportunities and helping build partnerships to make their Poly system successful.


YOU’LL NEED TO:

  • Have excellent written and oral communication skills

  • Have the ability to use and keep up with several social media platforms

  • Strong interpersonal skills

  • Have great teamwork abilities

YOU’LL BE WORKING ON THINGS LIKE:

  • The development of the brand presence in the community

  • Managing and creating content for Poly & Birch’s social media pages

  • Community outreach initiatives – i.e. zero waste workshops and offline product promotion

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAVE:

  • A passion for environmental issues

  • Interest in writing and blogging

  • Experience coordinating events or community outreach activities
