Re gen

Re gen is a proposal for a radical way to recycle local used items through a multi-scale material conversion and repurpose system. The Re gen Cooperative creates low-tech material transformation machines (cyborgs) that are publicly accessible. Re gen uses commonly found waste such as glass, cloth, paper, and plastic and converts them into reusable goods or transforms them into building materials. Re gen would significantly decrease waste, use of natural resources, cost of construction, carbon emissions, and most importantly: abolish our throw away culture.
