Mobile Miniature Makerspace

UPCYCLING PLASTIC

We educate children and their parents about the importance of plastic recycling.

Main Features

Recycle plastic

We developed six modules that represent a particular stage of the plastic recycling process.

Modular

The bike is designed to be upgraded and modified in the future to accommodate new technologies.

Solar power

The aim is to charge the internal battery with solar power and allow for a 100% green powered system.

Teach kids

The bike is part of the mobile FabLab of the BSF which visits schools all around the Netherlands.

Inspire

We have learned a lot from the global plastic community and we aim to give back as much as possible.

Opensource

All plans for the bike have been made opensource. Download the plans below.

“How do you explain how the recycling of plastic bottles works? Release a group of 5 FDF student bin tricycle. A self-made cargo bike and the recycling process with a clear concept. In the cargo bike, all operations of a small bottle of small pieces are meld into a new 3D printed object. Hopefully, the bicycle will cycle to primary schools with their own collected bottles to be able to make homemade 3D prints. Make a 3D-print of your bottles! It is possible!”
