In STUDIO POP we have been working on Replastico2 project to transform plastic waste locally into unique design products and services with high- social value and civic incentives; we participate in fantastic plastic fairs, curate exhibitions and provide workshops on plastic remaking.
Replastico2 helps reducing carbon dioxide emissions by taking energy and petroleum-based resources to remake virgin hdpe or ldpe plastics. It also will save valuable natural resources, diminish landfill waste, stop street littering and the incineration of plastic. Chosen plastics are 100% reusable, safe, non-toxic, strong, lightweight, flexible, and easy to iron/melt/ fuse, cut and saw.
Human has created plastic bag with little or actually no consideration how it will be disposed. And indeed, it has a catastrophic impact to the environment as it is light and travels fast and even if it reaches recycling centre it mostly gets trapped in the shredding machinery stopping the work of the whole system !
The real story of baggy- the plastic bag pictures a life cycle of plastic bag from manufacturing, retailing, serving, disposal, polluting and upcycling to new- improved replastico2 products. Sadly, less bags than we wish reach our studio to be upcycled...
Think twice before throwing away and imagine its final destination...
Do you have any plastic bags you don’t know what to do? Give us a shout we will be happy to help.
We are open for collaborations so drop us a line if interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
