Meet PETE – The Recycling Device That Transforms Your Plastic into Clothing

PETE 1Organising your plastic waste has never been more glamorous, as Hungarian designer Kovacs Apor birthed the genius idea of recycling your PET through a stylish new device known as PETE.

Rather than going through the ¬†usual tedious routine of sorting your plastics from your food waste to go in the necessary bins, simply feed PETE your PET bottles, and he’ll transform them into basic wardrobe staples!

“Pete creates a natural recycling method for plastic bottles and turns the consumer into an eco.-designer.”

PETE 2Kovacs was one of the six finalists from this year’s Electroluxe Design Lab, who came up with the idea for the wall-mounted recycling device, after witnessing the ecological damage caused to the Danube’s Delta in Romania, as a result of plastic waste.

How it Works

Simply choose your desired clothing type, cut and colour, while the device lets you know exactly how many bottles is needed to complete the process!
