Plastic with a Purpose

Creating solutions for people with disabilities using corrugated plastic

Plasticrecycling BoxThe Zoo partners with the University of New Hampshire's Institute on Disability in repurposing discarded plastic into assistive technology solutions for individuals with disabilities.

The Zoos’ discarded plastic signs are used to make tablet stands and portable book holders for individuals with vision impairments and physical disabilities. The Institute has found numerous uses for repurposing corrugated plastic into hands-free feeding devices, wheelchair cellphone holders, portable foot rests, and more.
