Müll – Cubes and More from Recycled Plastic Trash: Developed a new process where the chaotic beauty of recycling is preserved and incorporated into thoughtfully designed objects.

iCrowdNewswire - Dec 1, 2015

Müll is a sustainable project I’m starting to reduce plastic in our environment. I have developed a process where the beauty of recycling is preserved and incorporated into thoughtfully designed objects.

  • Each year an estimated 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. 
  • Unfortunately, less than 5% of those plastic grocery bags are recycled in the U.S., which means that roughly 95,000,000,000 plastic bags are floating around the world every single year.
  • A plastic bag can take up to 1,000 years to break down.

This project actually started about 2 years ago for my Senior Thesis in Industrial Design. I’ve always been passionate about environmental design, and decided to put my time and energy in that specific field. It took months and months of experimentation and fine-tuning, but I finally reached a process that produced the desired results. Now I am on a mission to spread the word, and get these awesome products to you.

Every piece will be 100% made in America. I will not take shortcuts or compromise the quality.

If you want to select multiple rewards, add the totals together and pledge that when it prompts you. I will get in touch after the campaign ends and finalize details.

1″ CUBE DENSITY TEST WITH SLEDGEHAMMER!

Currently the manufacturing process is tedious and time consuming. It takes way too long to produce each piece, so the funds will help me buy the machines to speed up the process. Therefore spending less time making and more time getting those bags off our streets!

I’ve created a system to incentivize you helping me recycle plastic bags. I’m sure many of you have a collection of plastic bags at your home. I know many families who collect them under their sink and they stay there, growing and growing over the years.

Here’s the incentive: Every 100 plastic bags you send me, I’ll give you a free 1.5″ cube! The more you send, the more free cubes you receive.

Pledge an extra $2.95 on top of your reward, and I’ll send my shipping address after the campaign.

The plastic is incredibly solid and nearly unbreakable. You'll be shocked at its density.

These blocks can be altered with the right tools. It is incredibly solid, and is similar to most hard woods in regards to workability.
