Intelligent Plastic Recycling Ideas

Much more can be done with used plastic than originally suspected. Plastic can be processed to create new objects of value. It is worth collecting plastic so that it can be used again – as a secondary raw material.


Here are a few examples that impressed us greatly, because all of them recycle "post-consumer/user" plastics (contrary to recycling "post-industrial" plastics – which is far more easy to execute), do not require the usage of expesive large-scale technology and can be repeated almost everywhere in the world:

Carpet tiles from discarded fishing nets

(Danajon Bank, Philippines)

Houses from Used PET Bottles
