Plarix is a material made of recycled plastic waste. In the UK alone, over 5 million tons of plastic are consumed each year and less than a quarter of it gets recycled. That means the rest of it ends up in our environment, in landfills and the ocean. Plarix is created from an array of plastic such as bottle tops, CD cases, coat hangers and plant pots….but the best part is that with a little R&D it can be made with any plastic waste, even waste collected from the ocean.
Patterns and colours are limitless and it can be used for cladding, tiles, art/sculpture, furniture and lighting.
