Although I’ve taken scissors to countless plastic six-pack rings, it’s never occurred to me to craft anything out of them until now. Origomu is a movement that encourages people to transform plastic six-pack rings into unique pieces of wearable art.

Every year, thousands of plastic six-pack rings threaten the lives of shore birds and marine animals harming our environment. Today, you can make a difference – no matter how far you are from the nearest shore. Join the movement and learn how to transform waste into beautiful artwear.

If you’d like to participate in the Origomu movement you can send your plastic six-pack rings to:

    Good idea to recycle however would it not be better to have those nasty six pack rings banned?

    I agree, Yvonne, but until that happens, this is an awesome project!
