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.

Erinnert ihr euch noch an Phonebloks?

Phonebloks ist die Idee Smartphones (und andere technische Geräte) modular aufzubauen und so einzelne Komponenten leichter austauschbar zu machen, um Geräten eine längere Lebenszeit zu geben.
Viel zu oft sind technische Geräte so verbaut, dass es wesentlich einfacher und günstiger ist, direkt ein komplett neues zu kaufen anstatt das alte zu reparieren.



Momentan sind 2 modulare Smartphones auf dem Markt erhältlich:


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.


→ Fairphone2 (fairphone.com)
→ Fairphone Interview (lilligreen.de)



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!
