What does Greencast® mean?


Greencast® are Acrylic sheets made from 100% recycled pre- and post consumer acrylic waste. Pre-consumer waste is acrylic that was discarded before it was ready for consumer use, like manufacturing scraps. Post-consumer waste is Acrylic which has served it's duty and brought back to the factory to be recycled. I also collect all scraps in the studio to be recycled back into new sheets.




How is Greencast® made?


A bit of a technical story, but here goes! First scraps and offcuts of leftover Acrylic are put through a depolymerization process. This breaks down the molecular structure of the material and brings it into a liquid state. After this it get's distilled and we are left with R-MMA, the original monomer from which new sheets are made. So in turning old offcuts and leftover pieces into new sheets a circulair new Acrylic is created!




Do you make everything yourself?


Yes, this is a one women show! I sketch, design and make everything in my Amsterdam studio. With my lasercutter I cut out all the shapes from 100% recycled Acrylic sheets. After this is done I assemble everything myself. Every piece passes through my hands. I started out as a graphic designer, so I love to think about the whole brand image from the product itself to packaging, branding and photography.
