WHY RE-PURPOSE VINYL RECORDS?
Fantayzia only uses damaged, unplayable vinyl records in her creations.
Records cannot currently be accepted in your household recycling scheme, or at a recycling centre. Instead, any records that are to be discarded will be sent to landfill.
In 2014, the UK sent 16 million tonnes of waste to landfill, much of which, including records, will not decompose readily. Vinyl records are made using PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride). If this is heated or burned, it releases dioxins that can be incredibly harmful and remain in the human body for a significant length of time.
Fantayzia has a passion for collecting vinyl records, and this drove her to find a reason to keep them out of landfill, and make them into something desirable – please take a look!
