Waste Streams | Exhibition

Part of Makerversity: Material Explorations

17 – 23 Sep 2018
10.00 - 18.00
New Wing

Exhibition showcasing designers who use waste material as a starting point and offers an alternative view to waste as untapped abundant resource to be harnessed.

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 waste 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 enagaging consumers to take an active role in repurposing waste.
