Zeke's Lunchbox is the creation of two Australian designers, Venus Mackey and Jupiter Rich. Their collection focuses on quirky â€œanything plasticâ€ streetwear with hand detailing such as embroidery, knitting and cross stitching. Many pieces also include found and recycled objects.

Implications - Though the use of recycled materials, or upcycling, has been accepted as a staple in the design industry, unabashed upcycling is a fairly new development. This refers to the use of recycled materials that are meant to look recycled, providing eco-conscious consumers with a way to let the rest of the world know that they care about the planet.
