plastic planet - art by calder kamin

bust of fox made from crocheting trash bags.

as a secondhand store in the business of recycled fashion, sustainability is something we care deeply about. multi-media artist calder kamin creates an educational platform with her art; opening a dialogue for the ways humans impact biodiversity. the whimsical animals and plants of ‘plastic planet’ are an impactful visual for the toll our actions take on the environment. kamin’s process involved twisting, coiling and crocheting strips of plastic from single-use shopping bags until they remarkably resembled fur, grass or flowers - to date she has diverted thousands of plastic bags from our oceans and landfills.
