The Sparkling Plastic Foundation is a local workshop in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, where hard plastic waste is recycled in a sustainable, educational, creative and social way.

First, the plastic is sorted by type and colour. The material is then shredded into granules which are heated in one of the machines (intruder, extruder, or oven) and converted into a new product. The foundation is inspired by Dave Hakkens’ Precious Plastic machines.

Sparkling Plastic does this together with students, artists and other creative people, allowing them to not only think about applications for recycled plastic, but also explore and experiment with it, since there are plenty of wood and metal workshops, but no plastic workshops. By experimenting with the material, new, more beautiful and sustainable applications can be created.
