D2. Waste Care

Circularity / Material Research / Illustration
Team: Monika Gravagno
Tutors: Erik Klarenbeek & Maartje Droos @ Design Academy Eindhoven, October 2021

Waste Care is a material-led design proposal that deals with individual empowerment around the repurposing of household organic waste. It is conceived in the BioLab Design assignment titled Closing Loops.

In short, by segregating and preserving the properties of waste at home, we are able to use them again.

The research was conducted for three months, where individual waste was collected and measured every week. This later extended to a communal practice among peers, and the main components of Household organic waste in Eindhoven were recorded.

Understanding recycling in the city and the local waste cycle made us reflect on the power we have as consumers. We implement design as an extra step to improve our relationship with waste starting with our own household. We call it caring.

The outcome is presented in a recipe book with information regarding the five main waste ingredients found through the research and how to adapt them into beauty routine products through a series of DIY steps at home. Waste donors were later rewarded with bottles of vinegar lip balm, or exfoliating scrubs made with their own waste.

We are currently looking to develop this project further. If you would like to contribute or collaborate, get in touch;)
