Have you ever wondered whether there is any other kind of use for unwanted plastic bottles? Perhaps with the EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer in your possession, things might change – for the better, I might add. The EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer happens to be a collaboration between 3DS and EKOCYCLE, where the former happens to be a brand which has been launched by will.i.am and The Coca-Cola Company. EKOCYCLE happens to promote sustainability via aspirational yet attainable lifestyle products that has been made in part from recycled materials.
I suppose as long as you have some kind of creative spark in your mind, then you would find the EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer to be well worth checking out. It has been touted to be a revolutionary tool for re-making instead of just making, further challenging us to have a different way of thinking just about how one can go about recycling.
3DS’ Chief Creative Officer will.i.am, claimed that the goal of EKOCYCLE is to “partner with the most influential brands around the world and use technology, art, style and inspiration to change an entire culture. We will make it cool to recycle, and we will make it cool to make products using recycled materials. This is the beginning of a more sustainable 3D-printed lifestyle. Waste is only waste if we waste it.”
All EKOCYCLE cartridges are made out of post-consumer recycled 20oz PET plastic bottles in part, where the EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer will retail for $1,199 a pop.
