Makerversity Material Explorations

15 – 23 Sep 2018

Makerversity announces the last in it's ‘Material Explorations’ series looking at Waste Streams.

Whilst the world wakes up to how damaging plastics are to our environment, Makerversity question what a world without industrial waste would look like. What if we only used locally abundant nutritious materials such as hair and food to create our products? What if we viewed materials as nutrients circulating in healthy, safe metabolisms instead of future landfill?

In this series Makerversity look at the different ways to tackle the waste that suffocates our planet; through clever system design, products that 'give back' to the earth and engaging consumers to take an active role in repurposing waste.

Join Makerversity this September to discover how you can turn food waste in your kitchen into bioplastics, why we should be harnessing our hair as a resource and the hidden powers of the humble potato.
