FINDING NEW WAYS TO REDUCE OUR FOOTPRINT
CREATING COOL STUFF FROM TRASH AND THROWN AWAY ITEMS
Conducting recycling and upcycling workshops enable us to create new cool products out of disposed of items or trash we find on our regular Beach Clean Ups
We create new household products from plastic bottle caps, bags from old T-shirts, planters from coconut husks and so much more.
These workshops help to reduce our impact on the environment and gives people an opportunity to learn what they can do to reduce their own footprint.
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
We might head to the beach, looking for plastic caps, coconut husks, material or driftwood.
Upcycling in a group is more fun, and can help brainstorming new ideas for reusing the trash.
Upcycling the products together in the open air, makes the day so much fun.
Making something that you can actually take home, or even sell if you think its so good.
WHY RECYCLING AND UPCYCLING ?
With landfill overflowing with trash, a throwaway culture and a lack of knowledge, we need to improve our habits and education to learn how we can use items that we discard.
By utilising items that we find on beach clean ups and from our own households, we can create something almost cost free, that can be sold or used by ourselves.
Upcycling reduces our usage of resources, such as fuel, water, forests etc. It also helps to reduce our impact on air and water pollution.
It reduces the amount of trash being sent to landfill or being incinerated.
It save energy by reusing items instead of buying brand new manufactured products.
It saves money, and allows you to be creative, coming up with new solutions and new products with the trash that you have found.
GET INVOLVED !
Volunteering or taking part in our Marine Conservation Internship will allow to get involved in all our projects.
You will be able to take these new recycling and upcycling skills back home to continue to create new products from discarded items and trash.
Who knows? Maybe you are a trash millionaire in the making?!! Its all about having fun and being creative, but with a focus on being environmentally aware.
