Sea of particles
After the loud noises and the chemical smells of the shredding machine, the small particles take a bath. Washing all the colorful pieces in an enormous tub of brown water and green soap is quite a job. This young man had developed a thick skin on his hands, due to all the small cuts of the sharp edges of the plastic particles.
