Precious Plastic helps free the world from plastic waste. The Lake Geneva laboratory focuses on the lake of the same name and its surroundings. Thanks to the machine kit (grinder - extruder - injector - oven), objects are created from domestic plastic or waste collected in nature. The concept creates a circular economy around Lake Geneva in which everyone can participate to contribute, on their own scale, to eradicating a global problem. Our objectives The Precious Plastic Léman laboratory raises awareness in a concrete way via a playful concept. By means of the set of machines, it valorizes the 7 types of plastic into new objects.
