Revolution: environmentally conscious design in plastics

March 2019 – September 2019

When they are in the wrong place, doing the wrong thing, and being disposed of without care, objects made of plastics are problematic to the environment. As such, they have become synonymous with the term ‘single-use’ and with environmental devastation; as well as the depletion of fossil fuel stocks, despite plastics being responsible for only 4% of crude oil usage.

Revolution aims to redress the balance by exploring environmentally conscious design in plastics. It looks at the use of recycled and upcycled materials, alternative sources of raw material feedstocks, and some of the ways in which plastics objects can actually help to prevent environmental damage.
