Build Materials

Zip-ties, Sellotape & Adhesives

Hidden plastics exist throughout build materials and decorations. Even tapes and glues are petroleum-based. 

Replace single-use plastic zip ties for reusable bungee ropes.

Invest in reusable zip ties.

Choose natural cord / twine, wool and washi tape (made from renewable sources such as hemp and bamboo and biodegradable). 

For an eco-friendly alternative to hot-melt glues, gelatin-based glue is a great solution. Gelatin based glue is derived from sustainable sources, mainly recycled pharmaceutical capsule netting, and is biodegradable. 

Most hot-melt glues are composed of polyurethane, EVA, and polyolefin, they are not biodegradable.

Blue Action: Use reclaimed and sustainable materials for all building / set needs including signage and banners on-site.

Blue Action: Repurpose or donate materials used for decorations / build materials
