The Everest region faces a daily waste crisis during trekking season, with over 1 ton of waste left due to limited infrastructure. Super Local’s innovative approach transforms HDPE bottle caps into unique souvenirs, including faceted pebbles and a scale model of Everest. Hand-operated injection molding machines, based on Precious Plastic blueprints, facilitate production. Caps are color-sorted for aesthetic variety, offering monochrome or mixed-tone designs. These vibrant products, made from thousands of recycled caps, serve as reminders of both adventure and environmental responsibility for tourists.
