As you may know, we at TingTang Design are putting a lot of effort into creating a more sustainable production and one of our objective is to shift from using virgin plastic to recycled plastic.
We have completed many tests and prototypes recently by 3D printing with 100% recycled plastic and the results came out great.
So we are happy to announce that from now onwards our cube’s feet will only be produced from 100% recycled plastic.☺ – orders are open!
With one small water bottle we can produce up to 3 feet.
The printed part keep the transparency of the plastic bottle it has been made of.
But this is only the beginning and we want to push forward!
Our next objective is to recycle local plastic waste to produce 3D printer filament.
Often, finding the value behind the waste is the best way to clean our landscape…
How it would work: We will collect local plastic waste (we have already found partners) focusing first on PET plastic (typically water bottle). We will wash, grind, dry and melt them to produce filament for 3D printer.
This filament will then be sold, mainly to ourselves, and the money collected will help in expanding the initiative to other places because Malaysia needs a lot of this little recycling plants.
This being said, buying the first set of machinery and producing the first batch of filament is expensive. To start off the project we are launching a fund raising campaign.
We welcome any amount of contribution be it small or big!
