Tips for Plastic Free Living!

Tips for Plastic Free Living!

Did you know that it’s Plastic Free July?

What does that mean we hear you ask?! It’s a challenge to try and live without the use of single-use plastic (things like straws, plastic wrapped packaging on food items for example). The aim of the challenge is to raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable plastic and challenges us to do something about it!

As you would probably figure, we are suckers for old school suitcases! And that’s why BassCase, a business that upcycles vintage suitcases into speakers, prompts music to our ears. We spoke to Scott, who works alongside his partner Emily to create these cool, portable and downright ingenious music playing doodads.

“We love the fact that each of our pieces are unique and that we get to create a little art piece in every BassCase that we design.”

Can you tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do? PotatoQueeen is a team effort between mum (Nancy)  and I. Nancy is a fully qualified designer/dressmaker, and I’m a full time criminology and criminal justice student as well as the designer for all PotatoQueeens clothes.

I’m not a particularly tall person, but most skirts available in stores are way too short for me!  I eventually got mum to agree to make me some clothes I had dreamed up, and once she did we got friends, family and even random people stopping me in the street to ask where I got my clothes from! We decided that we had a market here for original clothes and people willing to buy them, so why not give it a shot? Who are some other artists, crafters, creatives that you love? And why?

Local artists and designers such as Ella Mobbs from Creep Heart, Lauren Carney and Black Milk also really inspire me to create really beautiful and intricate designs. I take a...
