Dame Ellen MacArthur, founder of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation commented, “Globally only 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling and most plastic packaging is used only once before being discarded. We need to find alternative ways of getting products to people without generating plastic waste. Our project with CSM is exciting because a new generation of creative minds has applied circular economy thinking to help create a plastics system that works: a circular economy for plastics.” 

The students’ work presents an inspiring variety of ways plastics can be used as part of a circular economy, exploring new materials, new products, new services and education programmes. A full list of projects is given below.  The circular design input into students’ work was supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery; the exhibition was on display last week at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
