5 DIY Ideas To Recycle Your Disposable Face Shields

 

The Plastic Flamingo (The Plaf)

Make sure you’ve cleaned and sanitized your face shields for at least two weeks before dropping them off at The Plaf. They’ve got drop-off points in Muntinlupa, Taguig, Ortigas, Pasig, Alabang, Quezon City plus more spots in and outside the metro. However, they only accept the standard plastic face shield seen on the picture so you have to hold on to your acrylic ones a little longer.

To hit many (plastic) birds with one stone, you can also drop off other plastic wastes such as plastic bottles, hangers, PVC tubes, plastic cups, utensils, all cleaned and dried. Your plastic waste will be transformed into planks and posts to help build buildings, furniture, and more.

Consider donating it to vets and clinics

Call your local pet clinic and inquire if they’re accepting donations of used but clean face shields. Some clinics repurpose plastic face shields for DIY pets in their care. They even use them as safe collars for exotic pets.

Recycle your face shield and use it as a vaccine cardholder. Vaccination cards act like primary IDs these days. You have to carry it with you at all times so you can dine in at restaurants, board a plane, enter a resort, get a haircut, and many other activities open only for fully-vaccinated individuals. Since our vaccination cards easily wear out or worse, get folded and smudged, you can use your face shield’s acetate to keep them looking brand new until your booster shot.

Many Pinoys suggest keeping face shields to protect yourself from oil splashes when cooking. Unless you’ve got thick skin, everyone’s a little bit scared of frying fish and all the hot oil it involves. Face shields are useful in shielding your face from the hot oil spray. You can also wear them when chopping onions to avoid tearing up.

 

Got stocks? Healthcare workers might need them

You can always donate your new and unused face shields to those who are still required to wear them. Hospital workers aren’t exempt from face shield freedom. Call up your health worker friends or contact local hospitals to inquire about donating your stocks.

 

Check with your barangay

Employees of Barangay Holy Spirit in Quezon City are required to recycle face shields into torotot (horn), decor, and other useful products. Your barangay might have an initiative.

 

Christmas decor and costumes

Since the holidays are coming up, instead of buying new parol or Christmas tree ornaments, take your face shields and be creative with them. The government of Teresa, Rizal recently unveiled their Christmas tree made from recycled materials like face shield acetate, straw, and coconut husks. All you need are scissors, paint, and your creativity.
 

Consider keeping it for the future

The past few months were filled with wishy-washy decisions from the government on keeping face shields or ditching them. Who knows what they’ll decide tomorrow? Besides, the Alert Level could rise, especially since the holidays are approaching. It’s better if you hold on to your face shield for now until we’re out of the woods.
