Recycling acrylic waste into jewellery

Earlier this year the Gane Trust awarded a grant to Amber Bailey to fund the purchase of a vulcanised rubber press for her acrylic jewellery business.
Amber got in touch to tell us “This machinery allows me to recycle my acrylic waste into new sheets for laser cutting. It has been a great step towards reducing my waste and improving the environmental and financial impact of my business.  I have been saving my acrylic waste for the past year, hoping to try out this technique of recycling. It is thanks to the Gane Trust that I have been able to move this project forward within my business.”
