Summary:SLEZÁK, Matej: : Plastic shredder. [Bachelor thesis] – Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (Bratislava, Slovakia). Faculty of architecture; study programe Design, Training workplace Institute of Design. Thesis supervisor: doc. akad. soch. Miroslav Zvonek, ArtD. Bratislava: FA STU, 2018. 47 pages The main goal of the bachelor thesis was to invent and create a shredder of plastic bottles and similar plastic material which could be powered without the need of an electrical supply. One to two person manual drive should be preferred. The shredder should be mindful of practicality primarily in the context of its use in third world countries, but also with overlap in general where it is harder to connect to the electrical supply. The shredder helps to remove plastic waste and thanks to the manual drive, is also environmentally friendly. The work includes philosophy and the whole process of design and creation of the final model in a scale of 1: 1.
Key words:Ecology, Plastic waste, Developing countries, Design, Human power
