Designs that resonate with people must combine personal reflection and emotion, incorporating their own unique understanding of things. This is a good form of design, which not only spreads the concept of environmental protection but also extends the value of waste, but many works are often too abstract, resulting in works that do not achieve […]

Maybe my idea is a bit extreme, but think carefully about every action that exists under the label of “environmental protection”, none of which can make things completely environmentally friendly, and some will even cause greater pollution. For example, the action of “recycling”, if it is not a mere gimmick, then it must be a […]

As against group, after the debate, I learned a lot of positive opinions, and I also admit that plastic does have good effects in some aspects, such as its lightness, etc. (but many emerging environmentally friendly materials can also do it). We can also think of ways to prolong its service life, develop it from […]

Today’s workshop is about redesigning and using waste plastic. The aim is to get us thinking about how we can turn some linear products into recycled products that can be maximised rather than just wasted. As in the example mentioned in my first blog, an organisation has found a home for flip-flops in their best […]

This circular economy looks at all the options across the chain to use as few resources as possible in the first place, keep resources in circulation for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while in use, then recover and regenerate products at the end of service life. There are three principles […]

Greenwashing refers to false environmental protection, which is designed to appear to be an effort to protect the environment, but in reality is only an image project with no real environmental action. It is an attempt to cover up the social and environmental damage it has caused and to use it as a gimmick to […]

A carbon footprint is the total amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases emitted directly or indirectly by human beings during production and life, and is calculated as the carbon emissions generated during the entire life cycle of a product, including raw materials, manufacturing, transportation, sales, use, disposal and recycling. But it’s funny that […]

Imagination is one of the most important abilities of a designer, we use a figurative or abstract word to make associations, to get more inspiration and to find a unique starting point to complete the design work. In the first workshop session we went through some keywords to find or imagine something related to them. […]

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 […]

Ocean Sole is a marine conservation organisation from Kenya. They collect a large number of discarded flip-flops from the beach and sea and transform them into artefacts. Their approach has brought about a shift in thinking for me as a designer. There is no way to stop the pollution and waste that comes with the […]
