New Zealand artist Emma Muirhead has taken unwanted plastic bags into shoes. Emma wanted to highlight the amount of plastic that is discarded each year and says she used, ‘design as a tool to create value and change people’s perception of plastic bags’.

Now on display at the Replas Environmental Centre these unique shoes contain over 300 plastic bags that would have otherwise gone to landfill and according to Emma they, ‘highlight the versatile nature of plastic and create a new understanding of the value of recycled plastic’.
