Geeki Tikis Plastic Tumblers

Geeki Tikis Plastic Tumblers

We love the look of Geeki Tikis’ ceramic tiki tumblers, but if you’d prefer something more kid-friendly and portable, check out these versions that are made from BPA-free plastic. They feature the same awesome designs, but are far less fragile, and have a screw-on top with a reusable straw. Not dishwasher or microwave safe.

Why Plastic Exists

Why Plastic Exists

In the early 1900s, electricity was about to take the world by storm. But live wires couldn’t safely be used without insulation. Resin harvested from insects worked, but was too expensive to harvest. Necessity being the mother of invention, it drove chemist Leo Baekeland to develop what would become the world’s first plastic.

While we all know that plastic drinking straws are bad for the environment, it’s also true they’re good for making art. YouTuber Imaginative Guy shows off his crafting skills by turning a bendy green straw into a very convincing grasshopper fishing lure. He also made a shrimp using the same technique.

FORMcard is a pocket-sized thermoplastic sheet. It becomes pliable when dipped in hot water, allowing you to repair or augment objects or even make impromptu tools. It’s made from a starch-based bioplastic so it’s completely biodegradable.

Solid Gray Backpack

Made from a durable, lightweight folded plastic shell, Solid Gray’s geometric packs look like something out of a science fiction flick. Originally only in white, we’re really digging the new gray one.

PVC Pipe Sculptures

Korean artist Kang Duck-Bong creates these sculptures which look like they got hit with Photoshop’s “Wind” filter, using only pieces of PVC pipe, painted with urethane paint.

Solar Soda Bottles

Solar Soda Bottles

This may not be the first time it has been done, but it’s nonetheless inspiring to see something as simple as a plastic soda bottle be repurposed into something much, much bigger. (Thanks, Juanjo!)
