Hacking Plastic wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.

Who We Are

Hacking Plastic is a collective of environmentalists and makers/curators who are curious about the best routes to transition to a low-plastics world. Based in Staffordshire, UK, we're seeking artists, academics, and inventors who've got great ideas about reducing, reusing, upcycling or otherwise hacking waste plastics.


Subversive Plasticity presents plastics from our everyday world in a new light. With exhibits exploring the interplay between materials and the forms they take in plastic objects, it challenges people to build their own ‘plastics literacy.’
