Lots of broken fans + lots of beach straws = colorful lampshades/ hanging baskets.

Weaving the straws into the fan covers creates endless design possibilities!

Make Art Not Waste, Cambodia


Make art not waste came about in 2017 when Nina Clayton, an Environmental Science graduate and Dive Master studying marine conservation, became aware of the devastating amount of plastic waste in the ocean after witnessing it washing ashore daily on the remote island of Koh Seh in Cambodia.

Nina and other Marine Conservation Cambodia volunteers make artworks, mosaics, sculptures and installations from the beach finds. An outreach programme was created to spread awareness among schools and universities in Cambodia.
