The urge to utilise waste materials, combined with a fascination and passion for traditional crafts, are the driving forces behind Weez & Merl.
Originally transferring skills learned from the craft of woodworking, we have found many methods of working by hand with recycled LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene).
Over the years, we have developed our own processes and equipment to maximise its potential. Our ultimate goal is to make plastic a precious material.
Although LDPE is encouraged to be recycled, it is often difficult to find facilities in which to do so. In the UK, huge amounts are shipped abroad to be recycled - an unnecessary and unsustainable practice.
We stand for local recycling and want to make a dent in the amount of plastic that ends up in the wrong places.
We are a company designed around the circular economy concept, and we are working on restoration, repair and exchange schemes for all of our products to support this vision of a future without waste.
