Operation Take Two
Mobilizing youth to take sustainable action in their communities by creating innovative recycling hubs.
Community Recycling Workspaces
Compact & Attainable Setup
You don't need much space to create a fully-functional workspace—just electricity and ventillation. Our first-ever workspace was created within a revamped 40-foot steel shipping container!
Simple & Innovative Process
Our recycling process is simple—sort, shred, create! Plastic must first be cleaned and sorted by type. Then it's shredded into small flakes that become the raw material for new items using various melting processes and moulds.
Our process allows young people to get creative and make treasure out of trash. These creations can be sold to generate a profit—allowing workspaces and communities to sustain themselves.
Workspace in Action
Operation Take Two - Rutland
Est. 2019 (our first-ever workspace!)
Want to create a workspace in your community?
Operation Take Two seeks to provide hope, action and connection within every community it is found in.
We're developing a process to help new communities start their own workspaces, with funds and resources provided by us. Sign up for our newsletter to hear updates on our launch!
Operation Take Two was founded by high school students with the goal to take a holistic approach to climate action and environmentalism.
By creating a physical space, we created a path of direct action for young people to take within sustainability work.
Operation Take Two and its workspaces will always be the first step into sustainability for us, and a great beginning for many more young people.
