These Environmental Earrings Have Been Hand Made From Discarded Tubing from a Crab Pot!
All our jewellery, just like these quirky environmental earrings, is hand crafted in Australia using marine debris collected off our beaches and waterways.
Have you wondered what you could do to help our planet and the environment?
Do you want to do something to personally influence people to take action?
Do you want to advocate for no plastics, but don’t have the time or know how to do it?
Why not wear these recycled marine debris earrings and be the voice for our planet?
What are these environmental earrings made from?
These earrings have been made from recycled plastic tubing off a crab pot. Yes, they have marks and scratches on them, but that’s because they have been used and knocked about in the sea. This adds to their story and uniqueness.
We work closely with our local council, dive groups and individuals to collect marine waste from our beaches and waterways. Washed up on our beaches, each piece of marine debris we use has been hand collected, cleaned and finally arranged to create this unique one off piece.
All the plastics we collect are at different stages of deterioration and therefore crumble, split or crack. This makes it a challenge to both work with and to keep the plastics from deteriorating further. For this reason, we only use plastics which are hard and a bit more resilient. We can’t guarantee they won’t chip a bit, but this just adds to their story.
Why Do You Make Earrings from Man-made Marine Debris?
Deliberately used in making these environmental earrings, are materials which threaten our environment. We make each piece of jewellery in a creative way to act as a vehicle for carrying a message,as well as prompting awareness. By using pieces of plastic or debris without disguising or changing it allows us to furthermore showcase our message.
Raising awareness of the impact of plastics on our environment is above all, why we use these materials the way we do.
