I am creating a range of sustainable jewellery
manufactured out of recycled High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastics found
typically in household packaging such as shampoo/milk bottles, bread-tags and
bottle lids. The jewellery would be crafted from 100% recyclable materials that
have high durability and resistance to harsh conditions and environmental
impacts, are aesthetic, fashionable, sustainable and toxic free to manufacture,
and can be recycled eliminating harm done to the environment which would never
degrade, yet by repurposing the material, we create a new, original and unique
piece that is far from obsolete.New photos coming soon!
Exploration of Re-Purposing Plastics (PLA), Milk Bottles, Cups and Cutlery, in 3D Printing.
In todays world, consumerism and mass production are at an all time high. Consequently plastic waste is greater than ever. Reusing and repurposing materials for new endeavors, will allow for far greater sustainability. My 3D printed speaker seeks to pose the question, how far can we go using repurposed plastics for 3D printing. My printed concept of a Portable speaker is limited to the access of equipment and processes which are able to repurpose old plastic milk bottles into printable PLA. Further exploring what can be done with recyclable products would allow even further creative exploration and progression of sustainability.
Can people-pleasing be inherited?
Neither my mother nor my father would ever say a bad word about anyone. If they had nothing nice to say, they said nothing at all.
