In late 2012 we started thinking about plastics and how very little of them are actually recycled. Almost all plastics can be recycled but the majority of it ends up in landfills, on dumps or in the ocean.
Turned out that the cost of production and recycling machines, and the unwillingness to recycle by the owners of these machines, is where the problem lies.
So, we decided to build our own plastics recycling machines. Machines that are affordable and open source, where the blueprints are there for anyone to download for free, so you can start recycling and producing thing from plastic waste.
In 2013 we put a video online showcasing the 1.0 versions of these machines. And, even though we got them out there, they were more a proof of concept than the finished product. In order to make final versions of the machines we got a proper machine builder into our workshop. He, together with the fantastic Precious Plastic community, are now working towards finishing the project.
While we’re putting the finishing touches on the machines and blueprints we need your involvement in outlining the look of the project. in short, we need a logo and we’d love for you to help us with it.
So, we’re calling everyone and anyone who wants to get involved in this. Starting with us wanting your thoughts on inspiration.
We first want to know what the inspiration for the logo should be? We are looking for concepts and/or ideas that you feel describe Precious Plastic. Words, phrases, sentences, pictures, examples you like, abstracts… your imagination is the limit! And try to add an image with it.
This step will run for about two weeks. Then we’ll take into account everything that has been posted. And, move onto visual inspiration, refinement, presentation and voting, and work until we have a community-made Precious Plastic logo!
We can’t wait read see what you guys come up with!
