Checking out this list of The 22 Best Product Designs of the Year, I was excited to spot at least one that has a sustainable/reuse/unconsumption-y vibe:
E-Source. A sustainable cable recycling system for small-scale recyclers in developing countries, E-Source consists of an innovative bicycle-powered cable granulator and an approach to separating copper and plastic using water.
Un-burnt copper can be sold for up to 20% more than burnt, providing a better income for workers and much healthier working conditions. The designs will be made available to local workshops who would produce the machines and then sell to recyclers.
Designed by Hal Watts.
