Useful Everyday Objects Made From Recycled Plastic Materials | Plastplan

An Iceland-based design studio- Plastplan- uses recycled plastic materials to craft everyday objects such as a wall shelf, chair, stool, mirror, coffee table, table lamp, and flower vases. Instead of dumping huge amounts of plastic waste into landfills, the firm aims to contribute sustainably by reusing those plastic wastes in creating wonderful objects. In Iceland, recycled plastic has been a problem; that is the reason why numerous companies are seeking ways to turn waste into useful items. This effort will help a bit in reducing excessive use of plastic and thus assist in making a sustainable planet. The studio has developed machines that can be used for recycling.

The creative team gathers the plastic trash, recycles them and then turns them into daily required useful products such as pot, chair, stool , vase, lamp, etc.

The last product that they made using recycled plastic is a luggage tag. Though recycling and transforming plastic waste is not an easy process but a tedious one. First of all, they need to sort the plastic into seven categories.
