What if plastic 'litter' (currently a wildlife hazard) can be transformed into wildlife aids?
Inspired by the incredible example set by the Crisp Packet Project, I have begun speaking to specialist companies who focus on repurposing plastics (eg. transforming toothbrushes into cubicle walls in public toilets, or plastic bottles into plush materials to use in the Fashion industry).
To enable the nationwide, mass-conversion of plastic hazards (plastic wrappers, cellophane, throwaway containers) into wildlife tunnels to help wildlife cross our urban roads AND/OR wildscaping aids: plastic plant pots, plastic trellises etc etc.
I am working with the incredible Clean Up Britain to run positive, upbeat and proactive litter campaigns in every wildscaped space.
Instead of drowning in the litter surrounding us as we walk our local neighbourhoods, we can motivate our local communities by providing all of us with the choice of what we want our 'waste' to turn into, to better our local environments & our own quality of life, by boosting lush plant life and wildlife in our localities.
WAYS TO 'REPURPOSE OUR RUBBISH' SO FAR
Re-Using Crisp Packets To Help the Homeless
Penny - a local artist in Hastings who had volunteered a lot with Surviving The Streets - came up with the momentous idea of utilising non recyclable crisp packets (almost all crisp brands are non recyclable) and transforming them into waterproof bivvy bags for the homeless.
I will be promoting her work and collecting crisp packets on her behalf as I wildscape each new area.
Elastic bands cause especial harm to small mammals and birds, not to mention sea life as they get swirled out to sea.
Currently non recyclable, we can STILL collect them from our streets, parks and beaches (to prevent harm to local life) and make them available for re-use.
Simply, keep an eye out for any elastic bands whilst out walking/running.
Collect them & post them to me (email me at to ask for the PO Box address).
I'll wash them & re-sell them for the OPTIONAL cost of a small donation (should you wish) but otherwise just for the postage.
Donations will fund Wildscaping Worldwide & individuals/businesses will be able to buy pristine rubber bands (good as new) for a fraction of the cost, rather than buying new & drawing more on our planet's resources.
I will be promoting this service to all wildscaped communities.
