Come on a little plastic adventure with Plastic Tactics in Abercromby Square. Shred, melt and make using our low-tech equipment to turn scrappy plastic into colourful new things. We will be doing a short talk and a demonstration making carabiners, which you can take home!

If you would like, bring a small amount of clean bottle tops to shred and melt into something brand new - potentially even some from the independently-organised litter pick around Smithdown Road earlier on the day. Otherwise, use some of the community-sourced bits we have collected and cleaned ready for you to explore.

And if you have any questions before or after the event, DM us on Instagram or visit plastictactics.com to see what we're about and get in touch about our regular drop-in Plastic Playgroup sessions - or anything else!
