Why didn’t ya call?

The most extreme adaptive reuse of mobile phones is to detonate bombs

(And if you need more proof of the militaristic brainwashing that has infected parts of the US, read the rest of that site.).

But a better use of old mobiles is to recycle them. Smile Plastics recycle anything made of plastic into solid plastic sheets,

from mobile phones

to film

to my favorite, banknotes. The sheets can be made into benchtops, flooring, you name it. They even chop up children’s old coloured wellington boots to make recycled rubber flooring.

It seems like life following art to me. Remember Arman?

You’re going to see more and more of this stuff around, better learn to like it.

    There’s a scene in The Oyster Farmer where an old bathtub is restored with resin and stolen cash.
