A crack­ing idea

Your Chickens - - Nuggets -

Hens’ eggs could soon be ap­pear­ing on ta­bles in a way never seen be­fore thanks to the work of a univer­sity stu­dent.

Martina Zu­pan, a fourth year prod­uct de­sign stu­dent at the Ed­in­burgh Napier Univer­sity, has struck upon the crack­ing idea of us­ing eggshells to make a range of dis­pos­able table­ware.

The 26-year-old has de­signed and pro­duced a prod­uct called ‘Col­leg­gtion’ – a dis­pos­able cir­cu­lar plate with tear­away cut­lery that is made from waste eggshells.

One of hun­dreds of ex­hibits at Ed­in­burgh Napier’s More Than A De­gree Show, the de­signer has de­vel­oped a process that al­lows for waste eggshells to be formed into prod­ucts.

This process is cur­rently patent pend­ing, but Martina be­lieves her table­ware could help high­light the op­por­tu­ni­ties that up­cy­cling waste eggshells can bring.
