Most conventional plastic crap is made from non-biodegradable petrochemicals—instead of decomposing over time, it simply breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces (micro-plastics).

Since the 1950’s, plastic has become a popular material in the world: used in endless ways, found in countless items, and often made to be discarded and disregarded in mere minutes.

Since the majority of plastic is non-biodegradable, plastic waste has only accumulated over time, affecting our physical health and environment. In an effort to bring awareness to this issue and to keep some plastic from going into landfills or the ocean, I make art from plastic waste. What can we do to make a change?

Spread awareness, be mindful of plastic consumption, demand more plastic be made biodegradable—buying only plastic items that are. Be creative about making a change!

China Doesn’t Want Our Plastic Crap Anymore

China Doesn’t Want Our Plastic Crap Anymore

At the end of 2017, China announced it was going to start restricting imported plastic (and other goods) for recycling. For decades, the USA had sent tons and tons of plastic to China for this reason. Once the restrictions were put in place, waste management companies in America had to find other options for recycling. The two choices: greatly increase the price for recycling or throw it away— most have chosen the latter.

China finally cares about Earth, besides the geopolitical hate.

I hope that, someday, it will be impossible to find materials for this plastic art. They are making cups out of algae so maybe. Thank you for this thoughtful, amazing art. I'm busy rethinking how to create a bigger art statement about justice and how we treat the earth and each other.
