Plastic is a commonly used material but some of the properties that make plastic so useful, like its low cost, light weight and durability, also make it hard to dispose of. Even with the increased awareness to recycle, a great deal of plastic still ends up being thrown away. To help in these efforts, The New Raw, a design studio based in Rotterdam, has developed a research project called Print Your City, which explores ways to recycle plastics into public furniture through 3D-printing.
