Trash Into Treasure Bangle With Plastic Waste
Using waste repurposed into a bangle, we have crafted this trash into treasure bangle with plastic waste by recycling pieces of frayed plastic cord cleared off local beaches.
Encased in clear plant based resin, the pieces of blue and green cord float alongside small shells and reclaimed plastic vegetable netting, which gives this one off bangle a distinctive style.
By adding pieces of frayed synthetic cord and vegetable netting, we have produced a bangle which showcases marine plastic pollution in an unconventional way. Dressed up in a fashionable piece of wearable art, this is our creative approach to an ugly issue.
A Trash Into Treasure Bangle With Plastic Waste That Carries an Environmental Message.
Incorporating discarded frayed cord, along with the plastic vegetable netting, this bangle showcases man made sea debris waste.
Hand collected by both volunteers and recreational dive groups, the man made marine debris has been featured as a deliberate environmental statement.

Care of your bangle
Our resin may yellow over time, so to keep your bangle in excellent condition, we send you your bangle in its own bag. This way you can keep it in a dark and dry spot when you don’t wear it.
To clean your bangle, simply wipe it over with a soft cloth.
