Did you know that you can send me your waste plastics and I will make fun, innovative jewellery and accessories from them?
A few of my customers now have a "Lorelai Box" in their house, they fill it with the waste plastic items on this list and post it to me when it's full. I then refund their postage via PayPal.
Here's a rundown of the types of waste or excess materials that I collect:
(I do not refund postage if the parcel contains items that I do not collect, unless you have checked them with me first)
LDPE plastic lids
The flexible lids on coffee cans, Play-Doh, baby formula, Pringles etc
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
Broken jewellery of all types
The size of Kinder Egg toys or smaller, doll's accessories, Christmas cracker prizes, little charms and beads etc
Who Gives a Crap wrappers
I shred these to use in my packaging, I also collect paper bags for the same reason
I do not collect any type of food or drinks packaging or clear plastics, or toys larger than a Kinder Egg toy.
Send an email to me at Lorelai@Lorelai-lq.co.uk if you have materials you would like to send me
There are a few other businesses who have their own amnesties, so if you have any of these items you can send them their way:
Inflatable toys and paddling pools
Toys larger than a Kinder Egg toy up to 10cm
PLEASE DO NOT GIVE MY POSTAL ADDRESS TO ANYONE, DIRECT THEM TO MY EMAIL ADDRESS OR THIS LIST IF THEY WANT TO SEND ME THINGS
