Plastic Conscious

A recycled plastic ingot to allow everyone to redeem their plastic footprint

Alban is a product designer who has been working in the plastic world for 10 years, with a specialization in 3D printing. He met David, a mechanical engineer, at the Maker Fair at the Cité des Sciences in 2021, in Paris.

They first wanted to work on the recovery of waste from 3D printing, and then developed an idea that tackles the plastic plague on a global scale.

Their solution is called My Plastic Footprint: a collaborative platform that allows each citizen to redeem his/her plastic footprint, materialized by a recycled plastic ingot called the “ plastingot”.

by Alban Desbarax, Designer, and David Le Gall, Commercial Engineer

“ PO lab is a great program because it combines technical and strategic support. It will help us to launch a pre-production of about sixty « plastingots » and to draw up a business plan. “
