Environmental concept 1 – reuse of stuff

As mentioned in the first blog, as a designer, there is no way to stop the consumption of the large modern population. The creation of waste is inevitable in modern times.

A large number of the designs are based on the theme of urging the public to reduce consumption or to reduce polluting behavior. Yet the concept of environmental protection, which has been advocated since the industrial revolution, has not been able to stop pollution and waste even today. As designers, it’s time to change our thinking and make use of things that would otherwise go to landfill.

The reuse of things is something we need to think about, how to make otherwise discarded items valuable, or how to turn the bad effects of pollutants into good ones.

Two great examples:

1.Ecological French fries packaging: a large amount of potato peel waste from the processing of French fries is used as a material for French fries packaging, solving the problem of the large amount of packaging waste associated with French fries as a fast-consuming food in modern life.

2.Fabric recycling-Freitag:The brand transforms discarded truck tarpaulins and car seat belts into fashionable bags. Each bag is unique due to the angle of the cut and the source of the material. The sturdy raw material also extends the life of the bag.
