    About

    Plastic Fantastic Kenya

    A passion to use art for social and environmental change, Plastic Fantastic Kenya is on a mission to bring school children, artisans, and conscious consumers together in a community venture!

    SCHOOL CHILDREN
    Creating change from the ground-up, Plastic Fantastic Kenya educates children on ways to create positive impact in their communities and nature around them. Part of this education involves a recycling campaign we facilitate with the children. The children are also given the opportunity to interact with artisans in their community to experience how the waste they collect through their recycling campaign is used to create upcycled handcrafts.

    The students experience first-hand, the crucial roles they play in this community ecosystem – how their recycling campaign creates opportunity for their neighbors – the artisans and their families – through the creation of upcycled handcrafts.

    ARTISANS
    We work closely with skilled artisans from developing countries to co-design and create handcrafts from out of plastic waste. This is known as “upcycling.” Upcycling allows artisans to not only clean up their communities, but also provides them greater income potential and their families a more dignified life.

    CONSCIOUS CONSUMERS
    We then market and sell these upcycled items to conscious consumers who appreciate one-of-a-kind, handmade creations. For the consumer, these upcycled creations spark meaningful conversations that shine a light on environmental.

    WORKSHOPS
    Working with organizations, school children and artisan groups, Plastic Fantastic Kenya offers education that teaches upcycling techniques and environmental stewardship.
