Hernan Torres

Hernán Torres is the director of the Dubai Chapter of Precious Plastic, an international online community, whose main objective is to change the perception about plastic from waste to a precious material that can be transformed and reused. Hernán was born in Mexico where he studied international business. In 2012, he moved to the UAE and his passion for the well-being of the environment pushed him to look for an effective way to raise awareness about plastic pollution. To help make the learning more interactive, Hernán built two home-scale recycling machines with local assistance. With these machines, he has organized more than 10 workshops in diverse schools, galleries and events.
