We throw away most of our plastic after a single use, especially at festivals and events. Visitors get used to throwing plastics away and start to see it as a worthless disposable material. The material quality however is just as good as it was before the usage. By recycling the plastic step for step into a new product we make visitors realise how valuable this plastic can be. We let people transform their throwaway drinking cups with 3d-printer in new products they care about. The Perpetual Plastic Project is all about showing everyone, young and old, how it's done.

The process consist of 4 steps:

1. Cleaning & Dying the waste plastic

2. Shredding the plastic into small pieces

3. Extruding the plastic into 3d-printer filament

4. 3D-printing of a new product based on a 3D model.
