PlastiScene by Scene
Junk Funk's parent organisation SCENE is piloting a world first re-used plastic lid design program.
Putting the power of plastic waste pollution into the hands of every day people through creation, design and beauty.
Did You Know?
In studies of the Earth's oceans, plastic bottle lids were found to be in the top 5 items littering the seas and beaches.
When you recycle plastic bottles the lids go to landfill (or worse end up in the environment).
Plastic lids are safe to melt, can be used over & over, and come in more than 50 colours.
It just takes a few everyday items to create with plastic safely. Like a sandwich press and a pancake flipper. Important: Don't eat plastic !!!
