You may ask yourself, "why should I recycle?"
Plastic waste is everywhere: lakes, oceans, rivers, beside the road, landfills, etc. Plastic waste is not biodegradable and is wreaking massive havoc on our environment. Each American generates 185 pounds of plastic waste annually! The USA alone has manufactured 18.2 billions pounds since the 1950s. Unfortunately, less than 10% of plastic is ever recycled.The plastic epidemic must end.
Corporations recycle some of the plastic they produce, but the machinery required is large and expensive. Thus, small communities or households could not recycle independently. That was before Dave Hakkens, founder of Precious Plastics, decided to make a change. He designed a line of machines that enable small scale productions for recycling plastic. These machine blueprints are available completely free and opensource on his website.
Here, we are actively trying to improve our environment and communities. We want to make these machines available to the public so that anyone and everyone can recycle. If we're going to see a positive change in our world, we all have to work together! We've only got one planet, so we've got to take care of it.

Our goal is to see plastic recycling communities all over the world! We understand that not everyone has the capabilities to build these machines on their own, that's where we come in!
We are located in Southeast Kansas.
All of our machines are manufactured in Boise, Idaho by Citizen Scientific Workshop
