Interview with 

Mark and Lorraine Cann


Playship, Children's Field, Glastonbury


Ben -  One example of recycled products coming full circle could be seen in the children's field where ship builders, Mark and Lorraine Cann were putting recycled plastic to good Playship, Childrenuse.

Mark -   You're looking at a child's play ship in the form of a double-ended tinner,  made of steel and clad in Plastwood, which is a recycled product.

Ben -   What's the advantage of using recycled plastic for this?

Lorraine -   None, really.  It's quite a difficult material to use, but it closes the loop with the festival.  All the plastic from the festival goes into the recycled plastic and it's something that Michael Eavis wanted us to have a go at using.
