Used, overused, disused, discarded, discontinued and now almost extinct, the all-melodious vinyl records have become the things of past with no visible signs of retrieval or repossession. The fire, however, hasn’t yet gone out since recyclers keep transforming those neglected vinyl pieces into something useful. Folks at LP Shapers is one such eco conscious group of recyclers who plan to recycle and reshape vinyl records into usable items like earrings, dishes, platters, candle sticks, caddies, wall clocks and what not.
Creatives at LP Shapers transform all kinds of cracked, scratched, warped or otherwise unplayable LPs into neat-looking stuff. During the manufacturing process, they first melt the LPs and then, in less than 15 seconds, they reshape them into uniquely designed household items. The team further plans to create holders for iPhone or iPad.
Now, since the team wishes to turn this hobby into a profitable business, they are seeking funds at Kickstarter. The proceeds will go towards buying a laser cutter, purchasing discarded vinyl records, pains, clock parts, and further, registering for craft fairs, exhibits and creating a following.
With 28 days to go and its aim to collect $9,000, the project has attracted one backer as of now.
