Changing the way we deal with plastic waste, one 3D print at a time

Plastic waste causes huge problems for both men and nature worldwide. We learned that it’s often burned and that a big part of the plastic that ís collected, is not recycled. That’s why we developed a 3D printer especially made to recycle plastic waste streams. From our workshop in the North of Amsterdam, we change the way we deal with plastic waste. By using it as a resource, vanPlestik wants to show the world that plastic is more than a disposable material.
