RPC Tedeco-Gizeh Kenfig, based in West Glamorgan, has demonstrated an innovative way of recycling plastic cups – by turning them into a wedding dress.
The dress has been created for Tracey Leahy, Managing Director of Mannvend, independent vending machine supplier based on the Isle of Man, which has a five-year contract with Kenfig to supply plastic cups.
David Lowe, General Manager at Kenfig, said: “Tracey mentioned that she was getting married and threw me a challenge of making her a wedding dress from plastic cups. Of course the creative team at Kenfig embraced the idea and got to work on the design.
“We agreed that if the dress could be produced then Tracey would wear it for part of her wedding day, in August. We are absolutely delighted with the result,’’ he continued.
“I’m thrilled that RPC Tedeco-Gizeh rose to the challenge and have produced such a stylish dress. It just shows how versatile plastic cups can be,’’ Leahy commented.
