Communication Arts & Design graduate Jo Blaker has been collecting paper bags since she was a kid. Here she turns them into biodegradable, PVA coated paper vases that she hopes will cast light on the throw-away nature of our culture.
We don’t really like to think about death in our daily lives, but if we are going to die, let’s turn it into a sustainable act to try to leave the world in the same, or in a better condition than when we left it. Created for biodegradable and fair trade Ecoffins, designer Nilofar Emami designed a ‘Karma-free’ green coffin made entirely from bamboo ensuring people can go peacefully ‘from nature to nature’.
