Children, being the next influential generation should equally be aware of the plastic waste issue and the importance of reducing consumption.

Daniel’s product ‘Tattie Toys’ is a bioplastic, fossil making kit for kids that achieves this through the activity of extracting starch from an old potato, followed by casting the bioplastic starch mixture into a wooden dinosaur tile.

These tiles are mounted on card printed with facts about that dinosaur and then hung on the wall as a constant reminder of the impact that our materials choices can have, as well as being a fun collectable item for the children.
