3D printing gives trash a second life

Last year, Hallenstein Brothers partnered with Ekocycle, to produce a range of suits made entirely out of recycled plastic bottles. Now, the Coca-Cola environmental initiative is being taken a step further thanks to Cube, a small-scale 3D printer that transforms plastic Coke bottles into a range of different items. 

In a short video uploaded onto YouTube earlier this month, Ekocycle co-founder and ambassador will.i.am delivers a short presentation on some of the items that the 3D printer can be used to make.  

The printer was designed by 3D Systems and comes set with 25 different design options, which include shoes, robots, vases, iPhone covers and bracelets. But with a hefty price tag of $1,199, this product has clearly been designed with the wealthier environmentalist in mind.
