“Plastic’s fantastic!”

El Fab Space  -  Tunisia

The non-biodegradable plastic which is ubiquitous in our everyday lives is also responsible for polluting the planet. Wikiplastic was designed at the FabLab to raise awareness of this issue among Tunisians and get them to recycle. It’s a box for collecting plastic products to be recycled, which rewards responsible citizens in a ‘wheel-of-fortune’ way.
