Recycling plastic to create art

By Bill Doran


My wife Kelly, and I were at another local market at Daniels Landhuis in Curacao, and once again, I came across a couple that were creating art while helping the planet. They use recycled plastic utensils (knives, forks and spoons) as well as recycled tin (thin metal) to build some beautiful art that you can use to decorate your home.


I just had to stop and talk to them for a while, and what a pleasure it was. Together they cut, glue, bend, paint and more to create beautiful items. I talked at length to Juni (Domingo) Wever, and his business is “We Do It Art”.


As people throughout the world are trying to decide what to do with all of the plastics being used Domingo and Herman Shone have actually made decisions and are making a difference. And what a beautiful difference it is!


Are you familiar with the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words?” Well the best way to tell their story is to show you several photos. Be sure to zoom in to each photo to see the recycled items that they have used.


Let us ask ourselves the same questions that we asked last month. Can this bring more people to my store, you ask? Yes!


But how:

  1. Promoting “locally made” will attract new people to your store that care about their community.
  2. Remember that these craft people have friends and family who would share the news of their displays and successes. These friends and families have friends and families too. How many new people would come to your store?
  3. Once in your store, you can present people with your courses and adventures. Remember that our mission is to get people into our store and sell them something.
