Recycling machines are usually rather complex in design, but the 'Precious Plastic' project hopes to encourage consumers to DIY their own from home using blueprints found online.

Developed by Dutch designer Dave Hakkens, the 'Precious Plastic' project aims to bring enhanced awareness to the gargantuan amount of plastic waste in our world. Being that plastic is one of the most common materials found around the world and also one of the most discarded, 'Precious Plastic' shows what can be done to help stop plastic pollution.

Four recycling machines have been created with instructions on how to create them yourself found online. They can enable users to take plastic and repurpose it into a new product that will help extend the life of the material and prevent it from polluting our world so soon after creation.
