Sharp’s Craft Brewery Makes Record Awareness
Anyone who is old enough to have listened to music in the 80s and prior most likely did so on a turntable with vinyl records. This once black vinyl polymer has recently been recreated using ocean plastic.
Craft brewery Sharp’s in Cornwall, UK has partnered with musician Nick Mulvey to produce the first playable record made from recycled ocean plastic found on the Cornish coast in southwest England.
This limited-edition record contains a single track, “In the Anthropocene”. This can also be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital platforms.
All proceeds raised will go to Surfers Against Sewage, an organization that helps protect British coastlines from pollution, plastic or otherwise. Although this fund won’t put much of a dent in recycling all of the waste that has washed up on Cornish beaches, it hopes to raise public awareness as well as open the eyes of the music industry for any of its non-sustainable practices.
The brewery has teamed up with advertising agency Havas London and sister company Universal Music Group to market this recycled record.
The ocean vinyl album can be purchased through driftrecords.com.
