How much plastic waste is Confetti repurposing?

Launched in 2018, the Confetti Range designed by Gibson Karlo continues to serve and delight. Using 100% recycled plastic, the collection offers over 20 vibrant and practical indoor/outdoor products that reuse Australian post-consumer plastic waste, saving it from potential disposal to landfill. Confetti is locally produced and each piece is completely unique.

The Breakdown

Based on a standard 2L milk bottle (approximately 42gm of HDPE), here's an idea of how much recycled plastic is reused when you purchase some of these Confetti favourites*.
