REpurpose with Purpose at ReMida Perth
At ReMida, we believe that waste generation is a behaviour and that behaviours can change.
There are three key elements within our environmental stewardship ethos.
1. Actively seek value in any item you're about to discard.
2. Build on your good habits towards better ones.
3. Make a start, find something you can change and take that step.
Plastic Diversion with Jellyfish Plastics
Jellyfish Plastics repurposes plastics bottle caps into a rand of simple to make, signle plastic items. And the best thing, if you're item breaks, or you'd like something else, it can be remoulded into another item. Something made with Jellyfish Plastics can remain out of landfill indefinitely. ReMida gratefully acknowledges the support of the Waste Authority and the grant monies received i 2018 that made the project possible.
When the Jellyfish Plastics first launched, we used two narratives, short poems, to explain the heart of what we were trying to do, you can read and download them here.
