RECYCLED MANNEQUINS AT THE PLASTIC MUSEUM
The first 100% recyclable plastic museum in the world: The Plastic Museum opened on 8th May in Madrid with the aim of being recycled once it closed its doors a week later. On 17th May, to celebrate the World Recycling Day, the entire plastic museum was dismantled to be reused and recycled, giving each of its components a new life.
Eco design, use, reuse and recycling
The Plastic Museum seeks to raise awareness of how the responsible and correct use of plastics positively contributes to our society, and to show that the problem occurs when the waste is improperly managed. Furthermore, the museum emphasizes the importance of the use of plastic and its contribution to environmental protection, at each phase: ecodesign, use, reuse, and recycling.
In addition, the museum will also focus on the achievements that have been made possible thanks to the innovative capacity of these materials, how their use has changed since their creation, and the advantages offered in terms of security.
Plastic is the new fashion
Sempere Mannequins joins The Plastic Museum with the exhibition of two mannequins made from recycled plastic. A head display and a 100% recycled mannequin, made in ResisTek, bags and bottle caps from recycling plants.
