HANDMADE IN THE KAROO
We are a mom-and-daughter team passionate about upcycling & creating functional, everyday products by hand in our studio in Graaff-Reinet, South Africa.
We see waste materials differently. We believe waste materials like plastic are too valuable a resource to waste.
Since 2017, plasticity. has re-imagined waste materials and transformed them into functional everyday, upcycled products that add value to your everyday life.
Our brand is inspired by the hopeful notion of neuroplasticity - which is our brain's ability to create new neural pathways in response to change and our ability to adapt in a positive manner to challenges... I think when faced with a challenge, we are presented with the opportunity to re-think, and potentially even thrive!
plasticity. is based in the Eastern Cape, the province with the highest rate of unemployment, currently sitting at 47.1%, in the country with the highest level of unemployment in the world.
We believe we are uniquely positioned to make an impact in the Eastern Cape by creating opportunities for skills-based training, supporting local plastic recyclers and giving second chances.
We create the change we want to see, one upcycled product at a time.
Where are your products made and where do you source your discarded plastic from?
Each and every plasticity. product is handmade in-house. The majority of the plastic waste we use is sourced locally from local recyclers. We also accept plastic donations from individuals and businesses. We use sheet-like plastic to create our products (plastic bags and other soft, foldable plastics)
To give second chances to discarded plastic waste and give them a second life by creating upcycled products for the world, creating local impact and opportunities.
