Did you know that you can send me your waste plastics and I will make fun, innovative jewellery from them?
A few of my customers now have a "Lorelai Box" in their house, they fill it with all the waste plastics, tissue paper and other odds and ends they have and post it to me when it's full. I then refund their postage or round up the amount to the nearest pound and pop it on a giftcard to spend in my shop.
Here's a rundown of the types of waste or excess materials that I collect:
Plastic carrier bags or mailing bags
I fuse layers of plastic bags together to create a material similar to faux leather and then cut shapes from it.
Stop those single use plastic straws ending up stuck in a turtle's nose and send them my way to make sturdy, yet lightweight colourful jewellery
I use bubble envelopes to make statement pieces that are squishy to the touch (they must be the kind with plastic on the outside, I can't use the paper ones)
Fruit netting bags
Craft materials like beads, sequins, threads etc
Small toys (Kinder Egg size)
I try to use all recycled tissue paper to package my orders, so I use the wrappers from Who Gives a Crap toilet paper as my main source of packaging.
I do not collect food packaging or clear plastics.
Send me an email or a message on Instagram or Facebook if you have materials you would like to send me
