Recycled Plastic Coaster
Check out these awesome precious plastic coasters. They are made from 100% recycled plastics found during either river cleans, lake cleans, beach cleans or collected directly from resorts, dive centres and restaurants. Each pendant contains approximately 4g of plastic.
When you buy these coasters a percentage of your fee goes back towards conservation efforts like our Perhentian Marine Research Station to conduct coral restoration and beach clean ups or our riverway projects around Malaysia.
If you want to give a great gift to someone whom you know loves marine life then please buy some!
The Precious Plastic Method
This recycled plastic coaster was made using the precious plastic recycling machines. The Precious Plastic machines were made by David Hakkens who built the machines and released their blueprints to the world in the hope that people replicate his machines all around the world.
The machine shreds, melts and then injects the melted plastic into a mould, making these lovely coasters. Ingenious!
The machines use type 2 and 5 plastic which are things like straws, plastic bottle lids, most shampoo bottles and many food grade plastics used for cups and food containers.
Fuze Ecoteer run Precious Plastic Workshops for schools and corporates. The machines in the Perhentian Islands were sponsored by American Express Malaysia through their corporate volunteering Serve Together initiative.

Love them! Apart from just looking gorgeous and have a practical function, these coasters were once discarded plastics. It’s just amazing that they have now been recycled and turned into something that people actually use! This is definitely an endeavour that we should all support.
Many thanks, Rahayu, it’s really warming to know you love them and make great use of them. Other people’s waste is our treasure.

Absolutely love the idea and dedication from whole team and founders! Personaly I LOVE coasters, some I’ve made into soap dishes, great way to bring some colours to your house ( bathroom) and support a good cause.
Many thanks Luba for the kind comments. I love the way you have added the stones to the flat coasters for soap dishes. Very creative. We hope you purchase more for your soaps.
