We are artisan recyclers, crafting uniquely patterned home decor from single-use containers we recycle ourselves. We primarily work with HDPE (#2 plastic) which we shred, sanitize, melt, & press into boards that have wood-like properties. Patterns are created by mixing coloured plastic together, then stretching, folding &/or squeezing the mix while it's hot. Woodworking tools are then used to shape the boards into finished products. We hope to demonstrate how applying artisan craftsmanship to this material can double as an effective, eco-friendly, & tax-free plastic recycling system.
