I am an Industrial Design student from South Australia and have developed this small surf product as a solution to save and recycle plastic bottle caps. Each piece is made from 8 bottle caps, "the more we make for you guys the better for our ocean"!
This WaxComb is a zero waste solution to rescue plastic bottle caps from the landfill and pull them back into the recycling system “closing the loop”. My ambition is to bring value to small and inexpensive products in the surf industry by the process of saving the material from the waste and repurposing it to give it a new life. My goal is to expand internationally with these small products and do what I can to help fund ocean waste management organisation's with the proceeds. I currently mould each WaxComb myself from waste bottle caps in my garage and printing, cutting and assembling the dissolvable packaging by hand.
