Precious Plastic – This shop recycles your plastic bottles to create objects!

2016-04-12 // design tech

Precious Plastic is an amazing store concept that buys your used plastic bottles, recycles them, transforms them, before creating beautiful things! The bottles are first sorted by type of plastic and ground into chips, before being transformed into decorative objects, jewelry, toys or even filament for 3D printer.

But above all, the machines designed by Precious Plastic are fully open source, which mean that you can easily build all the necessary tools for plastic recycling thanks to the free blueprints to download, and why not open your own shop! The designer Dave Hakkens and his Precious Plastic project want to teach to the mass the techniques of plastic recycling, to reduce waste and pollution that spreads across the globe. A truly brilliant concept!
