May 19th, 2010, posted by Shore Crew Tags: Design, Word of the Week

This week at Plastiki HQ we’re going to be giving INNOVATION a big shout out. We definitely think it deserves a bit of recognition, it’s been putting in the man hours and we’ve seen no end of great sustainable and innovative (of course!) designs coming out of the woodwork in last year or so.

Being the modest bunch of people that we are we think the Plastiki is one of them. So expect to hear a lot about the Plastiki’s on-board technology and design in the next 7 days.

We’d love to hear about any inspiring design projects you’ve seen, we’ve got a few up our sleeve that we’ll be featuring, but, as you know, we love a bit of collaboration so feel free to send us a description, photo and link to anything cool and innovative you’ve stumbled across.

    Innovation is good when you are in the doldrums (see http://www.blurtit.com/q342706.html for a clear definition).
    Plenty of time to try things out and think ahead as ever Bravo Plastiki

    The perpetual material reclaim cycle
    Imagine having a perpetual material reclaim cycle with a material out of which you can produce an unlimited range of products which can be returned to their original material at any time – an energy-saving cycle that helps you preserve the environment and saves you money, even if every product worldwide is already being produced by this material.

    Innovation = taking technology out of the university lab and commercializing it to the benefit of the environment. http://www.triplepundit.com/2010/05/waste-management-moves-to-knock-styrofoam-off-the-shelves/
