The Precious Plastic Method
The Precious plastic shark necklace was made using the precious plastic recycling machines. The Precious machines where made by David Hakkens who built the machines and released their blueprints to the world in the hope that people replicate his machines all around the world. The machine in Perhentian shreds, melts and then injects the soft plastic into a mould, making lovely shark pendants. Ingenious! The machines use type 2 and 5 plastic which are things like straws, plastic bottle lids, most shampoo bottles and many food grade plastics used for cups and food containers.
Fuze Ecoteer run Precious Plastic Workshops for schools and corporates. The machines in th Perhentian Islands were sponsored by American Express Malaysia through their corporate Volunteering Serve Together initiative.
