Remix Plastic is based in Christchurch and is ownered by Anthea Madill who has a passion for conservation, education and community engagement to create circular economies.
Anthea has built plastic recycling machines so that she can create beautiful works of art using plastic offcuts such as 3D printer waste which would otherwise be destined for landfill. Instead this plastic is transformed into a wearable piece of art that tells a story and starts conversations.
Recycled plastic Monstera deliciosa leaf earrings to match your gorgeous favourite houseplant!
At Remix Plastic we love the combination of practicality and beauty embodied by the kawakawa leaves!
These duel feather earrings are made from gold and black ice cream container lids and drape over one another like the tail feathers of the Saddleback.
Please be aware that these are now a new design. We are excited to have recently updated the design of the huia feather earrings to allow us to scale up to fulfil demand. While the original design was black and white plastic melted together, the challenges with running out of white plastic has led us to make earrings that are black with painted tips. They are still 100% recycled plastic and the process is as environmentally friendly as possible. Earrings inspired by the beautiful New Zealand native bird, the Huia.
Earrings inspired by one of our most popular New Zealand native birds, the Tūī. Like the tūī’s beautiful feathers which appear black from a distance, only to reveal an iridescent sheen of blue, green and bronze in sunlight, the tūī feather earrings are mainly black with flecks of colour.
The latest of our recycled plastic native bird earrings: the Kererū. This New Zealand pigeon is the only pigeon endemic to the New Zealand mainland. The feathers are green-purple colour, but with a bronze tinge - a stunning combination that is impossible to recreate. But when we saw this dark green 3D printer waste we were inspired by its likeness to the beloved pigeon.
