Recycled Material Knowledge

25


25 simbi for fulfilling my request - Virtual OK - Posted Oct 09

I'm looking for people who have done projects involving upcycled or reused materials, especially plastics. I would like to hear about what techniques you used to manipulate them, and things you can create with them particularly anything meant to be a product. I'm trying to identify different readily available waste streams of things that either are not easily accepted as recycling, are thrown out in large volumes, or just cannot be reclaimed except by being incorporated into something else. This is to collect info for a book I am writing about utilizing upcycled materials in merchandising for Ecommerce!

We had a bit of miscommunication about the terms of the deal--I thought I'd receive fully-finished tattoo prototypes rather than sketches--but she was... thoughtful and skilled in her work. show more

About Calley Smith

My passion in life is sustainable living and ecodesign, my objective is to be a key contributor in establishing projects which enable ecologically conscious work and lifestyle choices. I am an entrep...reneur, and avidly work on community outreach projects to inspire others to become one as well. I believe that good design can save the world and provide abundance for everyone on earth, if we prioritize maintaining the environment and put respect for human life at the core of our values. Right now, my main personal projects are researching the properties of upcycled materials for use in ecommerce products, and establishing a local warehouse to collect discarded wastes that could be re-purposed and make them available for sale in bulk to crafters. In relation to this, I want do start a Twitch creative stream dedicated to handmade artisans, and push that platform farther than it has been taken before in service to businesses. I spend a lot of time researching UX design, and imagining the future of shopping in a way that is both more fulfilling to the user, more profitable to the maker, and less impactful on the environment. Another branch of this is creating a 3D virtual shopping environment, utilizing 3D scanning to render products to scale for interaction by a digital avatar. I foresee shopping in the future being primarily online, with less resources dedicated to physical storefronts which are enabling unsustainable production practices and human slavery.show more
