It was inspiring to read about the launch of Waitrose’s trial in Oxford offering consumers a range of products free of packaging. Their system isn’t revolutionary – smaller supermarkets have been doing the same thing for quite some time, as have many committed people. But it’s the first time that a major supermarket has made a big move away from the packaging-dependent model that has dominated major supermarkets for years.

Autex has transformed a roof terrace in London into a showroom displaying its latest acoustic panels and products.

Designed in collaboration with TP Bennett director, Michelle Wilkie and senior interior designer Ben Boxshall, Autex’s Clerkenwell showroom is intended to function like a gallery, where products can be exchanged on a regular basis. It is divided into four zones and can cater for both one-on-one conversations and larger group events.

Dispersed throughout the spaces are the manufacturer’s latest interior wall and ceiling acoustics products, which showcase ways designers can use them to reduce noise in the workplace.

The big problem with plastics is that though they last for a very long time, most are thrown away after only one use. Since plastics were invented in the 1950s, about 8,300m metric tonnes (Mt) have been made, but over half (4,900 Mt) is already in landfill or has been lost to the environment. In 2010 alone, an estimated 4.8 to 12.7 Mt went into the oceans.

Only a small proportion of the hundreds of types of plastics can be recycled by conventional technology. But there are other things we can do to reuse plastics after they’ve served their original purpose. My research, for example, focuses on chemical recycling, and I’ve been looking into how food packaging can be used to create new materials like wires for electricity.
