Plastic waste causes major problems for people and nature worldwide. Fortunately, more and more attention is being paid to the separate and collection of plastic waste. However, far too little of this waste is turned into new products. vanPlestik has developed and built a 3D printer that uses plastic waste as a raw material. With this, we make plastic recycling possible locally. We convert plastic waste on demand into unique, high-quality and affordable objects – such as furniture and parts for the local industry. We are a young company with a mission: to develop beautiful circular products, make people aware of the plastic waste problem and save as much plastic waste as possible from the incinerator. vanPlestik is based in Amsterdam and collaborates with companies such as Brewery de Prael, Awakenings, Hema, Ikea and the Municipality of Amsterdam.
