Wasted. When Trash Becomes Treasure – Digital book launch & talk on Vimeo

Craft, design and creativity have an incredible power to bring about positive social change. Perhaps nowhere more so than when it comes to the existential threat to the environment currently facing the world’s population.

Our current model of take-make-waste means that two-thirds of what we extract from the earth ends up as waste. But there is hope in the solutions proposed by a new generation of optimistic designers and makers. Indeed, they are perhaps the only hope we have.

On the occasion of the publication of the book Wasted. When Trash Becomes Treasure (Ludion) Glenn Adamson and Katie Treggiden discuss the all-consuming topic of waste and explore how it could instead become the raw material of the future.
