F.A.Q.

Are all Plastenka’s products upcylced?
Yes, each and every product is made of plastic trash. With some we reserve the original material after cleaning, and with UTOPLAST, we create a new material from different plastic layers.

What is upcylcing after all? How does it relate to recycling?
Recycling is any form of creating a new object from another one claimed useless before. With downcycling, you do this by creating a more simple material, a base for new products. With upcycling, you raise the walue of the waste product by breaking the it down to simple materials and creating a new product with that material.
