This upcycling kit is specially made for you to make a set of functional products from PLAYE (plastic layers), a material made from pre-pressed plastic bags that were destined for landfill. Millions of tons of precious plastic materials are going to landfill because not many people know how valuable this "waste" is.
But not any more!!
The kit includes a pre-cut wallet and pouch made from two different types of plastic bags, as well as a set of instructions and online links that you can use to guide yourself to turn this trash into something beautiful and functional.
The videos will teach you the basic chemistry and characteristics of the two different types of plastics that we are dealing with, which are Low Density and High Density Polyethylene. (LDPE and HDPE). These plastics are widely used in packaging all around the world, and they are easy to come by for future projects, but an extra piece of PLAYE material is included so you can test your skills after watching the videos.
Enjoy your upcycling journey, and remember to spread the word once you know, so we can get more and more people involved in the grand task of cleaning the planet from plastic pollution.

DIY PLAYE wallet and pouch - Upcycling kit
The Upcycling Kit will come in a bundle for which the wrapping is the extra piece of plastic material provided that you can use to make other products. This is intended to be the postage vessel but is is subject to how and where the kit is going, as the postal service requires plastic packaging for Express post of international shipping, it breaks my heart to say that the extra plastic wrapping is unavoidable and also, sadly potentially not useful for the method of upcycling learnt in the video workshops. :(
Regular shipping can be delayed due to Covid-19 regulations, but to high postal traffic areas is within two to three weeks time. I highly recommed to do express post if you need your asap.
