Much of what used to get recycled is now stockpiled or sent to landfill. Meanwhile, the world keeps using virgin plastic and throwing it away. Crazy, hey?
Dream team Rikki Gilbey and Lucy Jackson set out to help solve the problem by innovating a way to create hand planes from a mix of ocean and post-consumer plastic.
Good on you Rikki and Lucy.
