RREUSE is an international network representing social enterprises active in re-use, repair and recycling.
The linear ‘take, make, use, and dispose’ economy is driving the climate emergency. Extraction and processing of natural resources make up half of the total global greenhouse gas emissions and over 90% of water stress and biodiversity loss impact, according to the International Resource Panel. Product re-use and repair are the building blocks of circular economy, which can contribute to climate change mitigation by preventing resource depletion, diverting products and materials from landfills and incineration (therefore preventing associated emissions), and reducing energy demand.
Pollution, biodiversity loss, and climate change have all resulted from current lifestyles. Reversing course and getting people to act sustainably requires more than information, technology and new laws, particularly when change is in the hands of individuals. This is why Behaven works with governments and businesses to harness the power of behavioural science to make people actors of sustainability, and encourage the behaviours that benefit society and the planet the most.
One human’s trash is another human’s treasure. eBay Kleinanzeigen can give you more than you can imagine. Nestled among classifieds for furniture, flats, repair services, tantra massages, and baby clothes, you can find four Out of Scale listings. Occupying advert spaces of commerce and exchange, Anna Ehrenstein and Jeanne-Ange Wagne, Elio J Carranza, Nora Al-Badri, and Nazanin Noori offer their perspectives of the networked politics of the city. Find yourself in these distributed networks of revolt, resistance and dissidence.
Hydroelectric turbines for green, decentralized energy.
MARR’s mission is to challenge the perception of waste culture by providing a unique platform for artists at the intersection of art, community, and waste systems. The Moab area is highly impacted by the tourism industry and, as a result, waste management. By facilitating artists’ direct engagement with the waste stream, MARR encourages resident artists to consider their studio practice through the lens of sustainability and to thoughtfully re-assess their processes of material sourcing and waste disposal.
Through a 4-week residency, the program offers artists studio space, project and community facilitation, a stipend, access to materials at local waste disposal sites, and the time and space to focus solely on their art. As a component of each residency, artists spend time providing opportunities for learning, dialog and enrichment within the community.
The Solar Biennale, an initiative of solar designers Marjan van Aubel and Pauline van Dongen, counterbalances the prevailing technological and economic viewpoints on solar energy. For seven weeks, the biennale focuses on the human angle: a solar-powered world goes beyond scientific research and uniform solar panels, after all. Cultural practices and place-specific energy needs also determine how the post-carbon future will develop.
We design and build products from excess fabrics and waste.
Diese Arbeit zeigt anhand von drei exemplarischen Produkten wie reparierbares Produktdesign aussieht. Zehn Richtlinien klären dabei über notwendige Vorraussetzungen auf und motivieren Nutzende, sich selbst an der Reparatur zu versuchen.
Finding Function In Unexpected Places.
900 trillion tonnes of food is wasted yearly, and so I challenged myself to turn this abundance of “waste” into utility. In this project, the wasted food was reincarnated twice. Firstly, it was given a second life as a bioplastic or a bioleather after a thorough experimentation with recipes. Next, the results were made into a myriad of physical and digital prototypes. Safe to say that one man’s food waste is another man’s treasure.
We are an international collective that develops online educational resources in the field of zero waste design and systems thinking for fashion.

rehub is a lab that aims to give a second chance to waste materials using cutting-edge processes
DIY reigns in the virtual world. With so many old points of friction removed, we can freely and cheaply build our own blogs, e-books, and Web magazines. But making real, live stuff still seems like a slog reserved for those who know their way around a bandsaw.
APC’s local access and community networks team hosted a webinar called “We ♥ Bamboo: How to grow and construct your own bamboo masts for extending rural connectivity – sharing experiences”. The aim of the webinar was to offer guidance to those who would like to build bamboo community network towers or further develop their work in this area. The organisers invited practitioners from India, Indonesia and Mexico with field experience in using bamboo for construction to share their knowledge and explore opportunities to use bamboo towers for extending rural internet connectivity and connecting the unconnected.
