In the current digital era, the development of printing industry is still irreplaceable. Printing products in the forms of books, packaging, and the likes are still actively produced today. However, the printing industry is one of the waste producers that are quite detrimental to the environment because it produces waste materials and harmful substances such as plastic. Although there have been several technologies in printing waste processing, not all printing industries have implemented them, so the impact on environmental damage due to printing industry waste keeps happenning. The initial stage of this research was carried out on OPP (oriented polypropylene) plastic laminate. OPP plastic is usually used in the finishing process in the production of book covers, packaging, invitations, and others. In some printing industries, OPP plastic production residual lamination is still only thrown away. This initial research is an upcycle program for OPP Laminated plastic waste into a rope as raw material for handicraft products with economic value. The final result of this study is a rope processed by OPP plastic Laminates which is ready to be used as raw material for handicraft products. The results showed that the OPP plastic Laminate rope met the expected quality standards as raw material for handicraft products. The research findings recommend that OPP Lamination rope to be used as an alternative raw material for the development of handicraft products. The handicraft product using the OPP Lamination plastic strap will be the next phase of the research project.
