Marilu Valente’s project: Nepenthes bottle

"Inspired by nature where there is no waste, Nepenthes is a reusable bottle for products like shampoo or shower gels. Named after a unique tropical flower, its curvy design means its cap-less and hangable. It is made with bio-based plastic and can be easily recycled. Nepenthes opens at the base meaning it's easy to clean, refill and use. Eliminating the messy clutter of plastic bottles, Nepenthes lets you enjoy a zero-waste lifestyle!"

Harri Moora‘s project: Material flow analysis for industrial upcycling in Bangladeshi & Indian textile factories

"To make upcycling possible on the industrial level it is paramout to understand the material flows and the waste generated. Upcycling design is based on the parameters of existing material and has to fit the production system to make scalable designs."

The sessions are held in cooperation with the EcoDesign Circle project and its partners.
