Establishment of Boxhead Plastics from First Thought to Production
When the tomato sauce bottle slips out of my shopping bag whilst trying to muscle my purchases into the house from the car I think “phew lucky it was not glass” Why is plastic so useful to us humans yet so harmful to our planet? Why do I want it and hate it at the same time? Can I escape from the guilty feeling of looking around my house to see so much plastic? Who takes responsibility of the environmental concequences of plastic and how? While it may be possible to eliminate some forms of plastics, such as the single use plastic bags, plastic’s versatile and durable nature means it will continue to play a role in our lives. Which means we’re left with the question of what to do with plastic when it becomes waste? How can we inventively, and usefully repurpose these materials?
