While thinking of what types of plastic waste I will use in my images, I decided to do a bit of research into what items are recyclable and which ones aren’t. As we do a lot of recycling at home, I was now curious.
I was shocked by my results.
It was shocking to see how many items can’t actually be recycled, and I know we have a lot of these items going into the recycling each week, to now know they can’t be recycled made me think and almost feel bad as they more than likely end up sitting in landfill sights or the sea.
When using plastic in my images, I want to use a mixture of sizes, colours and types of plastic, both recyclable and non recyclable.
