Precious Plastic

It is working to find a solution to plastic pollution and doing so while sharing knowledge, techniques, and tools openly and freely.

Precious Plastic is a global community that is working to find a solution to plastic pollution and doing so while sharing knowledge, techniques, and tools openly and freely. The project consists of creating workspaces and machines like shredders, injectors, and ovens that can transform plastic for reuse.

Precious Plastic was started in 2013 by Dave Hakkens and is now in its third iteration with dozens of people working on the project, remotely or in situ. At Medialab, a group of users have built two of the machines mentioned before and they plan to continue developing the rest of the machines. In the presentation we will get to know Precious Plastic and the local commu. Join the fight against plastic pollution!
