Secret Life of Plastic

The Secret Life of Plastic invites you to rethink your plastic waste. In creating a range of pieces including flowers, lamps and jewellery I aim to get people to take another look at the contents of their bin and contemplate ideas of a circular economy.


The Secret Life of Plastic is a small Upcycling/Recycling enterprise which started in 2015.  Originally it was an educational art project created for the Ennis Street Art Festival to try and raise awareness about the detrimental effects of plastic on our environment.  From there the project grew and I have developed a range of carefully crafted products which I now offer for sale as well as working on commissioned pieces.  This enterprise is still in its infancy, I am in the process of developing new ideas all the time as I discover new waste plastic sources and think of new ways to reach people.  I am also planning a range of information based workshops utilising plastic waste in an effort to promote ideas and conversations about environmental issues and inspire others to explore enterprise ideas based on a circular economy.
