This is the bottom of the milk jug.
这是牛奶罐的底部。
The milk bottles are very good material for jewelry making.
牛奶罐是制作珠宝的上等材料。
It offers two different textures, so we have like a more textured surface and then we have a very smooth surface and that allows to create a lot of texture within the piece.

I’ve always been very attracted to just repurposing and recycling in my daily life, just personally.
我个人非常喜欢在我的日常生活中进行回收再改造。
I was just doing it naturally.
很自然而然的就会这样去做。
But then when I learned about the amount of waste that we had in the world, then I started thinking that maybe I should do more.
但是后来我了解到世界上存在如此多的废弃物,我开始思考也许我应该多做些什么。
My name is Jasmin Picariello.
我叫Jasmin Picariello。
I am the owner of the fashion company Giulia Letzi and the founder of project META.
我是时尚公司 Giulia Letzi的创立者,也是META项目的创立者。
META means destination in Italian.
META在意大利语中是终点的意思。
The new destination is literally just not having our plastics in landfills and oceans,but repurposing it and making other things that we’re gonna use every day and for a longer period of time.
而新的终点不应该仅仅是把我们用的塑料制品扔进填埋场和海洋里,而是去改造它们,把它们变成我们的日常生活用品,甚至是长久使用下去。
I moved to the U.S. when I was 16.
我16岁的时候搬到了美国。
I’m originally from Italy and ever since, from 2011, my mother and I worked on business together first focusing on luxury Italian handmade scarves,
我的祖籍是意大利。自从2011年,我和母亲一起做生意,第一次开始关注意大利奢侈品牌手工制作的围巾。
and then later on developing into upcycled jewelry and accessories, which has eventually become the core of project META.What really motivated me to start this project came from a 2017 study on plastic.What was discovered is that globally in the world we’ve produced 8.3 billion tons of plastic.And of that number, unfortunately, only 12% is being incinerated, only 9 % is being recycled,
后来我们开始研究珠宝首饰的改造升级,最终这也成为了我们META 项目的核心部分。真正促使我开始着手这个项目的是一份2017年关于塑料的调查研究。那份研究发现,全球范围内已经产生了83亿吨塑料垃圾。而不幸的是,这其中只有12%得到焚烧处理,只有9%被回收再利用。
which means that nearly 79% is just in landfills and waters.And that is a huge amount.
这意味着还有79%的塑料垃圾被填埋或是扔进江河湖泊。这实在是太多了。
I’m now shaping the aluminum which I took from used coffee pods.
我现在正在改造从用过的咖啡包上提取的铝。
I get this design idea mainly from my love of geometries and symmetries.
这个设计灵感主要来源于我对几何和对称的喜爱。
The aluminum and the original circular shape of the coffee pod really inspired me to keep the spiral round motif.
咖啡包上的铝和它本身的环形形状给我提供了思路,让我想到可以做成螺旋的圆形图案。
These pieces are created with aluminum .
这些首饰都是用铝做的。
This aluminum comes from coffee pods and soda bottles
而这些铝取自咖啡包和汽水瓶。
This blue is actually the natural color of the bottle that I’ve used.
这种蓝实际上是我曾用过的瓶子上的颜色。
When we first started, we were using plastic from our own consumption or from our friends’ consumption,
刚开始时,我们利用自己或者朋友买的商品上的塑料,
like, anywhere that we could save some plastic, we would use it.
只要有可利用的塑料,我们都会去用。
But now, I get my plastic and aluminum from grocery stores and coffee shops from my neighborhood.
但是现在, 我会去我住所周边的商店和咖啡店获取塑料和铝。
We want to make sure that this is an initiative that involves community and local partners as much as possible.
我们想确保这个提议能够尽量让整个社区和当地居民都参与进来。
We go through a lot of plastic bottles every week, and instead of throwing them away,
每周我们都会回收许多塑料瓶,而不是直接扔掉。
we’re trying to make better decisions with our recyclables by partnering with META,
我们努力通过与META项目合作,利用我们手头的可回收物做出更好的决定。
and we feel that this is a way to improve the planet one small step at a time.
我们认为这种方法能够从点滴改善我们的地球环境。
I am a true believer that we don’t need just a handful of people recycling and doing zero waste perfectly,
我坚定相信,我们需要的不是少数人去一五一十地回收再利用,不制造任何垃圾。
but we we need a lot of people doing it even if imperfectly.
我们需要的是许许多多的人都参与进来,尽管不是所有人都做得那么到位。
And so, with project META, if we can even help, you know, the one person a day contribute to this initiativeand realize that their changes and their actions daily will have an impact,
通过META项目,如果我们可以帮上忙,所有人每天都能为这个提议尽一份力,并且意识到他们的日常改变和行动都是有意义的。
then, I think we’re heading in a good direction.
那么我想我们就有了一个良好的开端。
