Using plastic found on the shores of the UK three friends, Charles Duffy, William Gubbins, and Billy Turvey came up with a project called “Everything You Buy Is Rubbish”.

They decided on this project as a way to comment on society’s overuse of plastic and the link between waste and consumerism. But also to communicate “ the disposability of contemporary products” and how the majority of products end up in a landfill or as pollution. The shoes are made completely out of plastic the found on the shore and in the Thames.
