Another addition to the Unconsumption Uncollection

Since just about any type of trash can be made into jewelry, the Uncollection un-assignment didn't seem like real project without some sort of jewelry addition making an appearance.

These earrings are made from #6 plastic and then shrinky dinked with the Mr. (and Ms.) Cart logo.

You can get the brief how-to make recycled shrinky dink jewelry all on your own. You can find #6 plastic in things like deli lids and other take-out containers.

And then challenge yourself with an un-project. Add something to the Uncollection and post your photo. It's a great way to unconsume and still be really excited about the new-to-you object.


  1. My mom eats Activia yogurt daily and I noticed today that those cups [both the green and white] are #6 plastic!

  2. Hi Panya - you'll have to try those out and let us know. I've only used clear plastic and have never used any #6 plastic that has any color to it, so I'm not sure if it works. But would love to find out!

    Happy ReMaking!
