We want to create design that is beautiful, clever and sustainable all at once. The projects tell their own sustainable story, to encourage others to get on board. We hope that by having fun our enthusiasm will be contagious.
Devised to get a college to start recycling, we put a week’s worth of actual college waste on display: 5700 polystyrene cups and 1600 cans. Our research showed the college that it could save money by separating and recycling its waste. Meanwhile our mugs sold in the cafeteria as an alternative to polystyrene raised the money to buy recycling containers.
