Please note: We do not currently accept post-consumer plastic directly from the public.
Yes - we can manufacture products using 100% locally sourced, reclaimed plastic, or we can help you close the loop by developing an end-of-life solution for your waste stream.

We're often asked this question in regards to items such as furniture, or even musical instruments! And the answer is - yes, we can!
However it's important to note that the most expensive part of a project is generally the design and tooling (and in the case of furniture, the manual labour) so one-offs bring the cost up considerably.
From concept, to design, to production, we can bring your product to life so that you can make a positive impact too.

Our client base varies widely, from innovative SME’s and green entrepreneurs, to schools, community groups, architectural firms, and even global brands!

We manufacture the recycled product in-house, at our workspace in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Our recycled sheeting can be used for various applications, such as the construction of furniture, splashbacks (non fire-risk area), or cut down into ‘tiles’ - the possibilities really are endless. The sheets can essentially be treated like (and worked with) in a similar way to wood.
Yes - we produce own our range of recycled products! Recycled products certainly are amazing conversation starters - we find they often give our customers the opportunity to have conversations around upcycling and the circular economy!
This is an important factor to consider when looking to produce 100% recycled products. It's certainly true that it would be a heck of a lot easier to buy, and work with virgin / new plastic. However, whilst processing recycled plastics into new products is absolutely much more time and resource intensive, the value here lies in the sustainable impact.
Additionally, ethical standards must be taken into consideration - we're committed to producing all of our products on-site, providing local employment and a living wage to our team.
The key takeaway: Mass producing items from virgin plastics is simply not comparable to the production of ethically and responsibly recycled items.
Creating 100% recycled plastic products that comply with food safety standards requires additional considerations and processes. Food contact testing protects the health of consumers - and this is something we take very seriously. So additionally, any products created that will come into contact with food need to undergo independent testing and external certification.
We offer pre-shredded plastic for those that don't own a shredder or granulator.
We’ve seen our customers recycle our plastic into things like jewellery, furniture, plastic sheets, mallet heads… and the list goes on!
Alternatively, we can also shred your BYO plastic by the kilo.
All of the usual considerations need to be taken into account when producing products for children and babies. Additionally, for younger age groups, food contact testing should be undertaken through independent testing and external certification.
Most plastic materials (including the recycled plastics we're able to work with) exhibit color change and loss of elongation when exposed to UV light.Generally, we choose to avoid any virgin additives as to ensure our products are 100% recycled, however weathering resistance can be improved by adding UV stabilisers to protect the base polymer.
