Plastic Straw Vases

The Yours to Care For Project Provides Single-Stem Foliage to People

— September 28, 2012 — Eco
The Yours to Care For project simply and creatively converts plastic straws into vases. Of course, these slim flower vessels are fit for nothing more than a single stem, but it shows just how creative people can get when it comes to upcycling and recycling. In fact, there is a charming aesthetic to the Yours to Care For vases, lending flower arrangement (or lack thereof) a more stark artistic quality.

Created by Liane Rossler and Sarah Kings of Supercyclers, a collaborative group they co-founded last year, the Yours to Care For project is just one of many sustainable and eco-friendly endeavors they have undertaken. Based in Sydney, Australia, they recognize the devastating effects plastic can have on the world. They figure out fun and imaginative ways to alleviate its ecological damage.
