We love changing things for the good. And we love helping organisations create and implement change – both inwardly and out towards the world. No planet B right? We start by fully understanding where you are and where you want to get to before we help you create the map to get there… and set you on your way.
It may be creating a new behaviour change campaign for your customers, it may be creating a more sustainably minded product or it may be applying our expertise in the circular economy to your organisation itself – give us a challenge and we’ll run with it.
Plastic Free City We worked with The City of London Corporation in 2018 to design the campaign model and content for a new initiative to help businesses, workers and residents reduce their reliance on single-use plastic. We are firm believers that people WANT to do good, and that given clear information, people can not only feel informed, but feel empowered to change their behaviour. To date, the campaign has reached over 40,000 people in the square mile of the city. https://www.plasticfreecity.london/
#OneLess – Zoological Society London Design can be a facilitator for change – problems often need a new, creative way of thinking. We were delighted to work as an invited expert and mentor studio for the #OneLess Design Fellowship programme in summer 2018 which saw product designers, architects, engineers and urban designers come together to create new ways to encourage people to use reusable water bottles in London. The results were showcased at the London Design Festival in October 2018. https://www.onelessbottle.org/design/
Tech Takeback, Brighton It is a sad fact that our desire for ‘new’ shiny things, and an electronic industry that actively encourages ‘free upgrades’ means that the drawers of our homes and businesses are filled with unused, unloved phones and appliances. But these appliances could be reused by others, or at the very least, their materials recovered. We worked with the team behind the public pop-up event series Tech Takeback to develop hand-drawn infographics and new products from broken gadgets to demonstrate the need for more circular thinking. To date, the project has recovered just under 6 tonnes of electronic equipment for reuse or recycling in Brighton, saving nearly 20 tonnes of CO2. http://www.techtakeback.com/
