How cool is this? A 27 year old dutch designer named Dave Hakkens decided that the world needs to recycle more plastic (only 10 percent is currently recycled). So he created simple machines that can be built from materials readily available anywhere, and shares the plans and instructions for those machines on his website. The project’s other goal? “Let people in every corner of the world know that they can start their own local plastic workshop,” as the website says. We love the double benefits his project offers, and the fact that the project is open source.
