Welcome to Our Blog!

Welcome to the PUR (Plastic Uniquely Recycled) blog!  Our goal is to create a space that welcomes new and exciting ideas on how to divert, reuse, and reinvent the plastics we come into contact with every single day. We are so excited to explore and share happy solutions to difficult issues involving plastic waste. We want to make this information accessible and easy to put into practice , so that everyone feels capable of making a difference. The plastic problem we are facing globally can be extremely overwhelming, which can often discourage people from taking steps towards reducing the waste they create. We are all in this together, and the best way to start making positive changes, is to just start! We encourage the community to share their own ideas and practices in diverting waste, and can’t wait to share our own knowledge with you! If you would like to contribute, please send us ideas, links, or any information you find helpful to our Instagram (@plastic_uniquely_recycled) , facebook (Plastic Uniquely Recycled PUR) , or email ([email protected])! We look forward to hearing from you.  To get help get inspired, here are a few images of the process involved in making our unique pieces. Enjoy!
