Recycled Plastic

Following a recent trip to Bali, I couldn’t get over how much plastic rubbish there was in the sea, even though I was diving in a protected National Park.

The Lost & Found Team are always keen to support and promote environmental projects. Industrial designer Carter Zufelt has developed a process that turns old plastic bags into objects that he calls Müll, which are not only beautiful, they’re useful.

Instead of letting plastic bags sit in a landfill where they can take up to 1000 years to breakdown, Zufelt decided to experiment to see if he could make something out of the discarded material. The result is a colorful marble-like material that he’s turned into desktop organizers, cubes, a stool, and a table.
