We all use plastic bottles.
It is comfortable. You don’t have to wash it, and if you want to get rid of it you just throw it in a bin (in best scenario – recycle as another option, but unfortunately not everywhere in world you able to do so). But not everyone from us know, that every single bottle we throw out taking on average 500 years to decompose naturally and do very significant harm to our beloved planet. We found some great ideas about how to transfer recycling of the plastic bottles into object of Art, decoration or even accessories. Our gallery will be presented by very renowned designers, such as: Prada, Tory Burch and Marni.
Especially we want you to pay attention on very talented artist, Gulnur Ozdaglars, who makes beautiful buttons, decoration and other objects of Arts from simple items, such as plastic bottles.
Plastic is very soft material and it is easy to deform under the low heat, which can be produced by a simple candle.
