A short film produced by Soneva at Makers Place the first carbon neutral recycling facility in the Maldives


Makers’ Place has been built from the ground up by British artist Alexander James Hamilton of the Distil Ennui Studioand his team working closely with the Soneva founders and the projects build team. Using hand-fabricated machinery and processes tailored to the facility’s unique island setting. With major soft drinks brands singled out as some of the world’s worst polluters, the studio aims to tackle the huge volumes of discarded plastic bottles and aluminium cans that choke the oceans, are burned in toxic fires or are dumped in landfill sites each year. Within its first three days, the studio processed 15,000 aluminium cans alone, creating a better end life for these once-discarded, unwanted materials, and removing them from the fragile ecosystem.
