For many years, we have been looking at the amount of rubbish that flows through our surroundings - from apartments, houses, schools, workplaces through entire cities to the whole world, rivers to the oceans.
A common question is where these tons of mostly plastic end up, what's going on with it?
Globally, we do not know, but locally we can see that it is in the forest or in the ditches by the roads. Therefore, while taking a walk or running, we collect plastic individually, in groups at school meetings.
However, in the timeline, most of plastic rubbish is within our basic reach, at the household level.
We decided to turn it into a product.
And we did it like this:
We sort the plastic according to the number in the triangle
We shred it with a home made shredder inspired by Precious Plastic
We melt it and press into the mold with an injector powered by PV energy
Rags to Riches is an upcycling social enterprise that uses waste to promote environmental sustainability, community engagement and education within Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
We employ the circular economy model to provide workshops within our own venues as well as providing outreach programmes to outside organisations to upskill, train and empower local groups and support vulnerable communities. We also sell a range of handcrafted upcycled design collections on our online shop to create economic opportunities for local makers while actively reducing and reusing waste. Find out more at https://www.govanhillbaths.com...
We passionately orient our steps towards a sustainable future through activism, efficient recycling and responsible consumption. That is why we work daily in favor of the protection and conservation of the ecosystem, with the objective of recycling the plastic that we collect from the environment.
This process is done in our own recycling Hub, where we separate, classify and treat all the collected material. From this waste, we manufacture new raw materials, which allows us to design and create handcrafted new products and accessories, handmade, 100% recycled, in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.

Formation BX is a sustainable design company centered on reclaiming plastic waste for use in closed-loop, small-scale manufacturing. We collect and process post-consumer plastics to create beautiful, functional products. All of our products are 100% reclaimed plastic and made in New York City.
We imagined; a dog leash as smooth as a hairless cat. Bursting in colours that look good enough to sniff and lick. And thoughtfully made to help the fight against plastic pollution.
Most dog leads squish your hand when doggo pulls, bounds ahead, gets extra energetic or suddenly halts for something sniff worthy.
Andre the Chihuahua (our Chief Inspiration Officer) threw convention to the dogs to re-design the standard dog lead.
The HI JAC dog lead was created.
A leash to prop your pup's style and Play nice with the Planet®
Precious Plastic East runs a coastal plastic recycling and manufacturing workshop in Great Yarmouth recycling local waste plastic from businesses, residents and beach cleans.
Set-up in March 2022, Precious Plastic East cleans, shreds and injection moulds the plastic it collects in its all singing, all dancing workshop built using Precious Plastic blueprints. All the plastic used is either post-consumer waste or plastic retrieved from the sea on local beach cleans.
Precious Plastic East is the trading name of Wastesmiths CIC which is a social enterprise and operates for purpose rather than profits. Any surplus funds it generates from trading are reinvested into achieving its aim of reducing the amount of plastic waste that ends up in landfill and the sea.

Anthea Madill runs Remix Plastic, a sustainability education project by Clever Green Limited. Remix Plastic engages people in a conversation around reducing single use plastic consumption and creating a circular economy. They share skills and knowledge to empower individuals to make sustainable changes.
Remix Plastic takes the 3D printer waste from the local library makerspace, chips it up, melts it into sheets and then laser cuts the sheets into unique products.
“With local waste we create products that have a sustainable story - not only does this divert waste from landfill but also provides a way to engage people in a conversation around reducing single use plastic. It embeds concepts like kaitiakitanga and circular economy into works.”
Anthea Madill is interested in all levels of the waste reduction conversation: government and policy, business and academic research, and individuals and households. She works to communicate high level concepts and research to everyday people that want... More

UP_designlab was born in 2020 with an idea, recycle plastic bags, which are discarded by the commercial sector and not only. We collect plastic bags from business waste; we classify them by type of plastic (HDPE and LDPE) and colors. Once the separation is done, we begin our process of designing our “plastic fabrics”, a collage cluster, we play with the different colors, textures, and types of plastics; once the design is defined, we take it to a compression machine that fuse the plastic through heat. From there, we start a handmade work which result is an unique product made with recycled material.
Aim of this market To sell raw material harvested with different contributions, from individuals or groups school, parish, offices, in order to get money for helping Tanzanian poor villagers to have water, school materials or other needs.
We are Julia and Thebe, founders of JUBE. We found our inspiration while digging into the old jewellery boxes of our mothers and grandmothers. We found some funny-looking plastic rings, dating back to the 70's, 80's and 90's (yes, apparently our mothers were fashionista's at the time) . We loved wearing these colourful chunky pieces and so soon after this we decided that we wanted to create these rings ourselves.We started looking into how we could make this rings and soon realised that producing more plastic, in a world that already cannot cope with the amount of plastic waste, was against our beliefs. And so, we started looking for alternatives.
That's how we found Vincent, founder of Utoplast, located in Trondheim, Norway. Vincent creates all kinds of things out of recycled plastic and immediately got super excited about the rings. And so our collaboration started. After collecting plastics from households, streets, factories and other places he shreds it into small pieces, whereafter he melts it... More
