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...

Creating waste?

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

There are many ways we can reuse domestically generated plastic waste. If you're not sure where to start, then please get in touch and we'll be happy to help.
