plasticity: the adaptability of an organism to changes in its environment or differences between its various habitats & neuro-plasticity: the ability of our brains to positively adapt to new situations.
Tessa O’Halloran founded plasticity. in 2017 after her curiosity about creating with discarded plastic waste materials led her to begin producing upcycled products on a small scale. Together with her mom Helen they began creating products with upcycled plastic in 2017. Four years later, they’re thinking of expanding their range of products to include an upcycled chair (more on that later...) and are excited to take on more bespoke sustainable design projects.
“Creating products from plastic waste was an adaptive response to a world filled with plastic and textile waste. Re-thinking and re-imagining plastic helps me to tackle the pollution I see in a creative and productive way.”
The mother-daughter duo has expanded to a small-sized team, transforming plastic waste into products that are unique, useful and beautiful.
