Today, due to climate changes, political issues, social evolution and the emerging markets, we are fighting against the clock with our waste. Design becomes responsible for a green and environment-friendly future more than ever.
Can you imagine the tomorrow’s world full of «green» waste under the pretext that Mother Nature will do the work?
That’s why today’s designer can be more like an “ecological father” of new ideas, for the next coming generations. Envi, is a foresight urban dustbin, promoting composting from biodegradable waste. The project is based on a social approach. It shows the benefits that we can take from urban recycling. It makes waste into nutritious compost for the plant which it carries and lives in harmony with. The big part of the produced compost can be separated from Envi for usage in other occasions.
This project uses bio-reactive substances based on photo catalysis to accelerate the degradation process of waste, remove bad smells and polluting gas. It is an indicator of human activities on our environment. If the people action is positive the plant grows up, if not it will disappear. Envi is eco-friendly in a coherent approach; attention was placed on the choice of the materials and their treatment.
