The need to recycle is urgent!

Breakers FabLabs  -  Spain

The "Re-generation project” offers recycling solutions for the many types of waste produced in our society by technological change and built-in obsolescence. It involves using FabLab equipment - laser cutter, 3D printer - to give a second life to various objects and functioning parts. Led by young people aged 16 to 25 facing difficulties in life, this is a project to produce objects which can potentially be re-sold, enabling everyone to imagine new environmental and economic perspectives.
