It's hard to get through a day without interacting with plastic in one way or another. From your plastic juice bottle or take out container, to your 3D prints and clothes hangers. Everywhere you turn there is plastic, so share how you incorporate plastic into your project for a chance to win a gift card.

There is also a special prize for the best use of Tinkercad within an Instructable. Please remember to include files created using Tinkercad, or embed a 3D model viewer.

The Plastic Contest is closed.

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Plastic Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
