Seeing plastic not being recycled and ending up in a landfill - or worse - has always saddened me. I think it's an exceptional material, and we should treat is as a very precious one, limiting its use to durable products and avoiding single-use application if possbile. And always recycling it!

I've been inspired by the Precious Plastic community, though I'm still operating from a flat with basic equipment and none of their wonderful machines. For now at least :)

I collect discarded single-use or broken plastic items locally, from friends and organisations, plus some street clean-up every now and then. I then wash, dry and sort the plastic according to its type and colour. I use two of the most common thermoplastics: High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Polypropylene (PP).

As a rule the plastic is then cut, if needed, and melted in an oven. I use metal or silicone moulds, depending on the product. I built a small wooden press that I sometimes use for some of the products, like plectrums, clocks and soap dishes.

Finally, the products are polished and tested.
