Upcycled Keyboard Magnets
15 August, 2016
Have you seen what we create with your EWaste at our Cape Town studio?
Firstly, we source the broken old keyboards from an Ewaste facility that looks something like this:
After stripping and cleaning the keyboards, we glue a sturdy magnet to each key by hand. Here our magnets are drying overnight:
Next we package and label the keyboard magnets. Each glass jar contains 1 full keyboard of magnets! Perfect to organise your fridge or office white board.
We are left with these bins of keyboard cases which we then return to the E waste depo.
They are crushed and bundled and remade into plastic used for clothing and toys.
So now you know the story of our fantastic keyboard magnet jars!
