REWIRE
turning local waste into weaving wires

REWIRE

Also known as WOOF & WOW and Polymore-wire is a local solution to plastic pollution with special attention to the social-economical context of marginalized communities . The project aims to eventually develop a replicable model for the upcycling of plastic waste into hand-woven products

Better Future Fatcory has created this simple tool that turns every PET bottle into a strong wire, ready to be used over and over again.

Rewire in Peru

Peru is currently undergoing fast-paced growth, which often does not come hand in hand with care for its rich environment. With growth also comes waste. Plastics are a predominant component of the Peruvian waste stream. Plastics remain in the environment forever, thereby threatening our environment and even posing risks for our health.
