The Project

The Precious Plastic Project (PPP) is a collaborative joint effort by Fuze-Ecoteer and The Sea Monkey Project to fight against plastic waste.

We build Precious Plastic machines (Plastic Shredder, Extrusion & Injection Machines and Moulds Packages) to be used for plastic upcycling awareness programmes in ASEAN countries.
