Müll is a sustainable project we are starting to reduce plastic in our environment. We have developed a process where the beauty of recycling is preserved and incorporated into thoughtfully designed objects. These objects are extremely durable and will stand the rigors of daily use for years to come.

Each year an estimated 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. 

Unfortunately, less than 5% of those plastic grocery bags are recycled in the U.S., which means that roughly 95,000,000,000 plastic bags are floating around the world every single year. 

A plastic bag can take up to 1,000 years to break down.

This project actually started about 2 years ago for Carter's Senior Thesis in Industrial Design. He's always been passionate about environmental design, and decided to put his time and energy in that specific field. It took months and months of experimentation and fine-tuning, but he finally reached a process that produced the desired results. He made two furniture pieces and was awarded with multiple design awards. He further refined the process and designed and made more products, many of those are what you see on this campaign.

Now we are on a mission to spread the word, and get these awesome products to you.

Currently the manufacturing process is tedious and time consuming. It takes a long time to produce each piece, so the funds will help us buy the machines to speed up the process. Therefore spending less time making and more time getting those bags off our streets!

Instructional PDF's of how to do this at home are available to all those who share this campaign on any form of social media. Copy and paste the following link to your social media of choice. Help spread the word.

Email us at mulliscool@gmail.com letting us know you did that, and we will send you the PDF after the campaign ends.

As you noticed, the PDF's are available at every reward tier, so anyone who shares this campaign will receive these coveted instructions.

Risks and challenges

As you can imagine, the amount of plastic trash it takes to make a single unit is pretty extreme. The biggest hurdle will be collecting enough plastic to meet the demands of the backers. So, if this Kickstarter performs like we're hoping we will have our work cut out for us. But, we are prepared! We are in the process of setting up recycling drives in the neighboring cities here in Utah. We are also in touch with landfills and are in the process of setting up a distribution with them.
