Embassy of Rethinking Plastic expo
Plastic causes environmental problems, but the material also has its advantages. It’s not black or white. We must think differently about plastic and reconsider the way we are accustomed to treat it. Designers play a crucial role in that necessary change.
In a surprising and stimulating way, the Embassy of Rethinking Plastic shows the possibilities related to plastic, how to deal with it differently, and what kind of alternatives there are. Think of lampshades made from agricultural waste, plastic-like material based on human hair, and flowerpots made from recycled bottle caps fished from the Amsterdam canals.
