Share Plastic showcases a selection of products and designs from plastic recycling projects around the world. The aim of this book is to inspire people with a glimpse of the beauty that can come from plastic waste, and show the potential and opportunities that exists within their own lives and communities.
We understand that the products are only one aspect of these initiatives and have intentionally left out details of the processes and techniques. Treat this as an art exhibition rather than an in depth guide to plastic recycling.
The projects curated in this book have been selected to show a wide range of products and artworks. Each was contacted through Instagram and everyone that was invited to be involved said yes - a perfect example of how open and accessible these initiatives are.
