You might remember Dave Hakkens as the man who popularized the idea of modular smartphones with his Phonebloks concept. He’s back with another environment-friendly movement, and this time he has a more concrete solution. Together with his friends, Dave setup Precious Plastic, which are DIY plastic recycling machines.

The most crucial Precious Plastic machine is the shredder, which as its name implies breaks down plastic objects into smaller pieces. The other three machines let you turn the shredded plastic into new items. There’s an extruder, which creates lines of plastic, an injection molder, which lets you create small objects using molds, and a compression molding machine for making larger or more complex objects.

Head to Precious Plastic’s website to download the blueprints for the machines and check out the video guides. The download package also includes templates for posters and stickers.
