Defy Design

Defy Design is a Sydney based company that specialises in designing and manufacturing products made from plastic destined for landfill.

Defy Design create a number of recycled plastic products but the one I particularly love is their Calm Buddi Turtle. Like everyone I go through periods of troublesome anxiety and I recently purchased the Calm Buddi Turtle. I have it on my keys and use it when I feel the anxiety overwhelming me, it forces my brain to focus on the turtle with it's different textures. I find it helpful and it's made from recycled plastics too!
