How Precious Could our Plastics be, If they Never Reached the Sea?
JellyFish Plastics creates beautiful, purposeful items from repurposed plastic bottle caps.
By focusing on plastic bottle tops (and through the use of simple machines), we've created an accessible, grassroots method for repurposing domestic quantities of plastic.
The environment is everyone's concern, and every piece of plastic we reuse or reclaim is a step towards a plastic-wise world.
It's as simple, just...
Bottle tops are sorted into colours and shredded in our granulator.
Using a sandwich press or a household oven, the granules are heated until they melt.
The flat sheets are shaped using simple moulds such as bowls and plates.
But is it...
Really that easy?
Yes, the most time-consuming part is cleaning and sorting the lids.
Any craft process that involves heat and melting materials requires some basic precautions. But this is something you can do at home, school or work.
No, you can use lids as they are, it just changes the process a bit.
The items we make can come back into the process and be re-made into other items if they break, or if you're switch things up a bit.
Repurposed with Purpose
