Italian Designer Proposes Food Waste as 3D Printing Stock

One of the greatest, increasingly tapped, potentials of 3D printing is the ability to recycle waste into new objects.  And, though there exist projects and products that take advantage of milk jugs, water bottles, car parts, and old prints as 3D printing materials, there’s still plenty of room for sustainability in the world of 3D printing and Italy-based designer Marina Ceccolini proposes another sustainable source for 3D printer feedstock in food waste.

Artist Mary Ellen Croteau made this amazing self-portrait out of recycled plastic bottle caps. Notice how she used sets of nested plastic bottle caps to achieve a much deeper color palette than otherwise possible.
