Violetta Riedel is an artist who recycles vaccine syringe caps into dresses. After working at a vaccination clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic she decided to transform plastic waste from the syringes and their caps into something wearable. From afar, I wouldn't have guessed that these playful dresses were made from medical supplies. I love to see people finding ways to transform trash into something creative.
"Plastic waste from vaccine syringes has now been turned into fashion. Violetta Riedel worked as an administrative assistant at a vaccination clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic. The plastic waste created by the syringe caps got her creativity flowing, and a few months later a fashion line was born. Reidel used what would have been trash bound for a landfill to make avant-garde clothing with an environmental message."
