Material Explorations: Waste Streams at Makerversity, Somerset House

Makerversity has announced the latest in its 'Material Explorations' series looking at Waste Streams. Whilst the world wakes up to how damaging plastics are to our environment, Makerversity questions 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 materials were viewed as nutrients circulating in healthy, safe metabolisms instead of future landfill?

In this series Makerversity looks 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.
