As paper lovers, we are also recycling lovers – here at Artoos|Hayez. No wonder Precious Plastic got out attention.
After getting to know Boyan Slat, the Dutch student behind the ocean cleanup, there now is Dave Hakkens. He also is a bright Dutchman, and he invented Precious Plastic, a series of DIY machines that turn unwanted plastic into usable objects or raw materials. The machines can be made at home using universal materials and basic tools available around the world. Blueprints, a series of detailed instructional videos, the download kit, … they’re all available online, shared via open source.

If you’re looking for me: I’m cleaning out the garage to make room for my personal Precious Plastic recycler!
