    The venture, “Star Polymers” is actively involved in raising the awareness of rational use and treatment of non-biodegradable waste. The journey to overpower plastics by star polymers begins from an existing plastic moulding facility owned by the owner’s (Mr. CK Babu) father; which during the course of time expanded to a socially committed organisation making good profits through plastic recycling. Taking the idea of recycling household plastics from a government workshop, coupling with his social commitment, the entrepreneur started the venture. At present, the polymer company perform moulding of the waste plastic, collected from the six nearby villages into products like electrical fittings and small household accessories. Such recycled material may be used for anything other than for storing food. The metal coated plastic, often found used as sachets for snacks and other food stuffs are unfit for recycling so that it is used for road asphalting, which gives the roads better durability. At present, the organisation is able to process 15 tonnes of waste plastics a month.
