Waste Not, Want It!

Tweet this Post DESIGNERS from the midlands are challenging society’s throwaway culture with an inspiring collection of beautifully handcrafted furniture, textiles, lighting and jewellery, made from everyday waste. 'Waste Not, Want it!' - is a collaborative exhibition between Design Factory, the region’s leading creative development agency and the Hub. The show will run from 14th June to 20th July 2008.

Waste Not, Want It! highlights how waste materials can be reused, recycled, reclaimed and recreated into sustainable design products and solutions. The exhibition includes designers who use materials, processes and resources that are environmentally sustainable, either in their production or implementation. The aim is to encourage visitors to become more eco-conscious consumers by challenging today’s throwaway culture. Waste Not, Want It! also aims to enliven debates around sustainability.

A series of events, talks and workshops will be created around the exhibition, for more information visit
