Plastic waste causes huge problems for both men and nature worldwide. We learned that it’s often burned and 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.
With our enormous 3D printer we transform plastic waste into unique, high-quality and affordable plastic objects. A comfy lounge chair? No problem. A gigantic statue like the plastic Madonna? Challenge accepted. We love to work for likeminded businesses as well as consumers. Among our clients are Fairphone, HEMA and the municipality of Amsterdam.
Eventually, we hope to turn the impact we have on a national level into a global impact. Therefore our goal is to reduce the plastic waste problem worldwide by enabling and creating local industries. Because a lack of access to recycling facilities in many places in the world, plastic ends up in nature. With our cost-effective 3D-printers we will be able to close the plastic loop on a local level. As a result, new businesses can be created that produce valuable objects and at the same time – keep plastic from ending up in nature.
