With plastic waste pretty much everywhere, Dave Hakkens is turning trash into recycled treasure via Precious Plastic. Beginning as a graduation project in design school, Precious Plastic evolved into a global movement empowering people to recycle plastic waste wherever it’s collected, thus tidying up the environment and stimulating the local economy at the same time. Precious Plastic open-sources blueprints for low-cost, modular, recycling machines built from basic materials so people almost anywhere in the world can start their own businesses. Who doesn’t love a classic win-win situation like that?
