Do you enjoy going to the beach for a trip on sunny days? I think every should say “Of course!”. But do you like the beach full of different kinds of plastic waste? The plastic waste is not only affect people’s mood, but also creat severe pollution.
Project Seafood is an adventurous attempt of Fabian Wyss and Jennifer Gadient from Switzerland to explore the possibilities of recycling washed ashore plastic waste into new 3D printed objects while travelling. Equipped with a plastics shredder, Noztek filament extruder and desktop FFF 3D printer, the couple drove their mobile recycling fab lab along the Mediterranean coastline of Spain all the way down to Morocco to collect household plastic waste beachside and transform it into 3D printed objects.
After half a year of living, developing and creating on campsites or remote beaches, the two are happy that despite minor scratches all their machines survived the heavy environment astonishingly well.
Today things are different. The world has become too crowded. We are using up our natural resources, and polluting our environment with dfferent plastics. If we continue to do this, human life on earth will not survive. Environmental protection is up to all.
