Check out the first playable record made from recycled ocean plastic

It's made from plastics from the shores of UK beaches

A record has been made from recycled plastics.

The brainchild of Mercury Prize winner Nicky Mulvey, Cornwall-based Sharps Brewery, Keynvor and vinyl manufacturing company Tangible Formats, the 10-inch record is the first of its kind ever made.

Made with plastics found on the coastlines of Cornwall, the record is entitled 'In the Anthropocene', and profits from physical sales and digital streams will go to UK-based charity, Surfers Against Sewage.

Earlier this year, London clubs Oval Space and Pickle Factory went plastic-free.

Read DJ Mag's feature on eco-vinyl, where we spoke with Deep Grooves vinyl pressing plant in Amsterdam about their mission to become fully sustainable.

Watch the clip to see how the record was made, and stream the track below.
