Product description

Handmade unique specimens made from recycled plastic | Sana Mare

These handmade carvings are made from plastic collected by Sana Mare from rivers in Kenya.

Each figure consists of approx. 130-220 g of plastic, which is a great danger to the ecosystem in nature. If it is not removed from the river, it ends up in the Indian Ocean. The Sana Mare project is financed through the sale of the sculptures. This creates jobs in Kenya and protects nature.


  • each sculpture is made from approx. 130-220 g of plastic (ca. 75-130 plastic lids), collected by Sana Mare from rivers in Kenya.
  • Animal types: Elephant | Lion | Warthog | Hippo
  • Material: 100% ocean plastic
  • Handmade unique pieces from traditional carving craftsmanship
  • The colours result randomly from the melted plastic lids
  • Proceeds fund the Sana Mare project in Kenya
  • Decorative articles
  • No Toy!!!

The production of the figures is very time-consuming. One person has to work about 2 days for one figure. The whole process includes collecting plastic lids, transporting the recyclables to the collection site, sorting and cleaning, melting and pressing, carving.

Attention! These are handmade unique pieces. The colour and details of the shape differ. The pictures are only examples.

These are not toys, but exclusively decorative items. The plastic used was collected from rivers and cleaned before processing. We do not recommend putting the figures in the mouth.
