Plastic waste in a huge problem around the world. At ISB we are collecting plastic to use in our Precious Plastics recycling plant in the Fab Lab. I wanted to take this opportunity to create something from waste plastic which could potentially be sold in the PTA store to raise money for a charity and also raise awareness of plastic consumption around the world.

Recently it was my birthday and I was given this beautiful comb. The finish of the comb reminded me of the plastic “cakes” or sheets that I have seen in the Fab Lab, created from recycled plastic chips. This was the inspiration for my project.
