Material Innovation

Describe your idea! How does it work to reduce / replace plastic? How will you involve others?

To use 3-d printers. One has to buy pe- or pla-filament. Although the later is more sustainable, both are not the greatest for the environment. Thus I would like to develop a 3d printing filament which is 100% made out of recycled plastic. And this should also become a home recycling station. So I can recycle my own plastic. This my 3d printer becomes part of a circular loop.
