Easy and stylish
In today's tutorial you'll discover how easy it is to get DIY accessories recycling plastic bottles .I worked for several years in the chemical industry taking care of pharmaceutical, cosmetic and human nutrition manufacturers. There are some issues which are treated with rigour and prudence but unfortunately some are managed in a harmful way for both our planet and for people. I guess that's why I'm always so insistent with recycling and sustainability...

Before I started designing this necklace I had a look to Marni's creations until I was inspired enough and "gave birth" to my version! The possibilities of this material are endless: go to your supermarket with DIYer eyes and you'll find a parallel universe of plastics made in different colors, textures and thicknesses. In short, please THINK before you throw any plastic container! You can make beautiful things!!
