‘Plastic Twins’ explores an alternative recycling process for both single-used plastic and domestic food waste. Together, they can be used to create a family of bioplastic containers through a very simple process as easy as cooking a meal. The ingredients are Agar, Glycerol, water, and any food waste that is already dried and crushed. In this recipe, Hutsama mainly uses eggshells and coffee grounds collected from her own kitchen and the restaurants nearby as main ingredients while adding various other wastes to compliment the texture and colour. Plastic water bottles and takeaway containers were used as the mould to pour the mix in after it was heated and well-mixed on the stove. Their variety in shapes can be combined in many ways to create different forms of objects which, in this series, then be used as plant pots.
