Precious Plastic

Dave Hakkens and his team make it possible for people to create new stuff from plastic waste!

One of the core goals of Precious Plastic is to offer people in developing countries ways to work with plastic waste as this resource is so freaking ubiquitous in their environments. We do this on a daily basis with our knowledge, technologies and platforms but sometimes we want to go a step further and give our full expertise and support by going in areas and set up plastic recycling workspaces- we call these projects Precious Plastic Pilot.

Do you remember Phonebloks

Phonebloks is the idea to build smartphones in a modular way so that broken parts can be replaced or updated more easily and increase the lifespan of a phone or technical device.

 

 

Here are 2 modular smartphones that are available right now:

 

Fairphone 2

The Fairphone 2 is the first modular phone on the market. Designed for repairability, spare parts are available in our shop to battle anything life throws at it.

 

New orders will be shipped in March

→ Fairphone2 (fairphone.com)

 

Puzzlephone

It’s the long­-lasting smartphone with three easy-to-change modules. (Like a puzzle. Except this is a phone.) Buying a new phone every time you drop it is now history. PuzzlePhone is reliable, upgradeable – ­even repairable!

 

New orders will be shipped in September

→ Puzzlephone (puzzlephone.com)
