Design Out Waste

ACT NoWaste and artist Rachel Develin explore the impact of consumerism and the importance of designing out waste through this collaborative installation.

The work tells the story of where our resources come from by growing and showing everyday items inside the packaging and natural resources from which they originate. The central globe sculpture made with students from Telopea Park School is constructed from discarded materials and explores the impact of our waste. An exhibition of sustainable packaging showcases examples from around the globe of the latest reusable, refillable, recycled and redesigned intelligent packaging.
