Consider this fact: more than 500 billion single use disposable coffee cups are produced in one year, many of them plastic. Even paper cups currently produced largely aren’t recyclable, due to the plastic coatings that are used.

OGSB Studio is a design studio based in Brussels who collaborated with Ateliers J&J on a pair of lamps made with recycled aluminum from local manufacturers. The Gota collection includes a table lamp and a floor lamp each of which features two points of pivoting motion – the lamp’s arm and the lampshade – that stay in place wherever you want them.

The first of these is a range of wash-off film labeling solutions that make it easier, during the caustic washing process that is central to the recycling of PET, to separate polypropylene labels from clean PET flake. The key to this concept is UPM Raflatac’s RW85C wash-off adhesive. The clear, white, or metallized film label stocks score additional sustainability points because their release liners are made from 90 percent post-consumer recycled content. According to UPM Raflatac, the labels have been recognized by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) as exceeding APR’s strict standards for recyclable label products.

The Shoreditch Design Triangle is a loose association of shops, exhibitions and showrooms, united by little more than geography, but it always serves up something wonderful, and often something pretty weird too. Starting with the latter, London-based Mexican designer Fernando Laposse transformed the entrance to CitizenM’s Shoreditch hotel into Sisal Sanctum – an outdoor seating area protected by pretty gloomy looking “giant guardians” – all entirely made out of sisal, a natural fiber harvested from a species of Agave cactus found in the South of Mexico.

Innovation not just for innovation’s sake, but driven by unmet consumer and industry needs: That was the inspiration behind Garçon Wines’ Flat Wine Bottle for e-commerce, a uniquely shaped wine bottle that easily slides through the rectangular letterboxes found in the doors of U.K. consumers and businesses. For its ingenuity, this “flattened” 750-cL PET bottle, which not only facilitates the delivery of wine packages, but also features a number of notable sustainability improvements over round glass bottles, was recognized by Dow as a Diamond finalist in its 2018 30th Awards for Packaging Innovation.

To us relatively wealthy Westerners, the obvious application for a cooler is camping. But for folks in developing nations who don't have access to refrigeration, having some means to keep food fresh is a crucial need, not a creature comfort.

The world is addicted to cheap, crappy clothes. Thanks to low-wage manufacturing in poor countries and the rise of fast fashion, clothes have morphed from being valuable possessions to disposable items that we chuck out at the end of the season. And, as I recently described in a recent essay, this never-ending cycle of consumption is killing people and the planet.

Not to brag, but we may well have solved the dilemma of finding a destination that’s far from the madding crowd of mass tourism. Whether a swanky aerie overlooking the Mediterranean or a powdery white beach in South East Asia, every resort on our list …

We tend to view plastic waste as worthless garbage, but a group of innovators and creators in Africa view it as an unexploited asset. They created the Dung Beetle Project, an art project that includes a pyrolysis gasifier to turn plastic into usable fuel. Through the effort, which recently debuted at AfrikaBurn and was spotted by the Land Art Generator Initiative, the Dung Beetle Project hopes to convert plastic from a problem to a solution. Inhabitat spoke with the project’s Finance and Marketing Director, David Terblanche, to find out more.
