Plastic Uniquely Recycled PUR offers empowering ways for our community to elevate plastic out of the the waste stream. Lifelong maker and owner Jenifer Sherman-Ruppe was inspired to find creative ways to reuse plastic to minimize and reverse environmental harm.

How does plastic turn into wearable art?

  1. Plastic is Locally Collected Various local businesses collect recycled and cleaned plastic. Everything from prescription bottles to Playdoh containers (anything that is #5 plastic) creates an array of colors for this precious material.
  2. Plastic is Carefully Shredded A machine shredder, designed by the non-profit Precious Plastics, tears up the plastic into small plastic chips. Chips are then sorted by color.
  3. Plastic is Creatively Re-molded Plastic is intentionally shaped into various designs, and hand-crafted into wearable art. PUR designs currently include buttons, key chains, necklaces, earrings, and more.
