Remix Plastic recycles plastic into beautiful, unique products. With local waste, Anthea Madill creates products that have a sustainable story - not only does this divert waste from landfill but also provides a way to engage people in a conversation around reducing single use plastic. She embeds concepts like kaitiakitanga and circular economy into her works.
