Precious Plastic One Year After

Each year at NNN we look for people and projects that contribute to making the planet a more sustainable place and reward them with the ECO Coin Award. In 2016 the winner was Dutch designer Dave Hakkens and his Precious Plastic recycling machines. One year after launching the second version of his machines, studio Dave Hakkens treated themselves with a little present to celebrate this achievement: the precious plastic patches. Hakkens is currently working on the development of an upgraded version of the machines, and you can help him achieve that goal. Play your part in plastic recycling worldwide, and you might get a nice patch in return.
