About

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.
