Tips & Suggestions

Broken ceramic pieces can be used in the bottom of plant pots for drainage.



It usually doesn't make sense to try glue broken ceramics back together (it may be ugly, it may still leak) however the Japanese art of Kintsugi turns broken pottery into works of art. If your item is treasured, you can get Kintsugi repair kits online. Go for it!



Unfortunately, this material cannot be recycled. It is also very hard to incinerate so when you put it in the trash, gram for gram it is contributing more to filling up Semakau landfill than most other waste materials. 

Do what you can to keep it out of the trash!
