Help International School The Hague met de ontwikkeling van hun Precious Plastic project

We, the PlastISH team at the International School of the Hague, are looking for someone just like YOU. You long for a green future, you want to reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up polluting our beautiful Earth, you want to make a difference. And that’s why you’ve come to the right place!


At PlastISH, our aim is to have a complete production line consisting of all four machines to recycle our school’s plastic waste. This way, we’d be able to create products at a relatively large scale and have a greater impact on the community, both at ISH and in The Hague – possibly even at an international scale later on!

Simeng spent two years building the plastic shredder for her Personal Project but we cannot afford to spend a total of six years on the remaining machines and that’s why we’ve decided to buy them. Problem is, this needs money…

Our team is split into designers, engineers and business & marketing who have so far been working together to:
– Shred different types of plastic
– Make improvements to the shredder
– Develop molds
– Create a website

Just so you can be sure that your money will be used wisely, here is the budget plan:

Extrusion Machine – €1260
Injection Machine – €400
Compressor – €700

Special Price for the 3 machines – € 2150
(the above adds to €2360 but we have received a discount)

Shipping cost is around €500 for 3 machines

Remaining €100 will be spent on molds

Total = €2750

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would simply like to say hi 🙂

Finally, please help us spread the word! Tell your friends, family, colleagues, teachers, students, the bus driver, the lady at the cashier – everyone!

The more support we get, the sooner we can start making a difference together.

* PlastISH is a project inspired by Dave Hakkens’ Precious Plastic initiative

Idea: We’re also thinking of creating a limited edition product as a small token of appreciation for all of our supporters!

      Hi Kevin,

      Sorry for the inconvenience but there were some issues when transferring the website ownership from our personal email to the PlastISH email which meant that we had to change the web address slightly (removed the at).

      Here is the working link:

      We tried to update this wherever we could but were not aware this had been published here! Thank you Haagse Helpers for helping spread the word!

      Best regards,
