MAK­ING TRASH USE­FUL

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - FEET UP -

Trash­plast is a part­ner­ship be­tween ECO-OH!, a Bel­gian spe­cial­ist in col­lect­ing, clean­ing and trans­form­ing house­hold garbage into new raw ma­te­rial, and Ital­ian com­pany Ecopixel, which trans­forms ther­mo­plas­tic ma­te­ri­als into prod­ucts. Ac­cord­ing to their press re­lease: “Ther­mo­plas­tic is a cir­cu­lar ma­te­rial made from 100% trash = house­hold garbage! It’s a rel­a­tively struc­tural ma­te­rial, ideal for out­door prod­ucts, wa­ter-re­sis­tant and wa­ter­tight… light­weight, in­flammable, scratch-re­sis­tant and eas­ily shaped.”

Trash­plast made its first pub­lic ap­pear­ance re­cently at the Salone del Mo­bile 2018. It formed part of the Ven­tura Fu­ture ex­hi­bi­tion, which pre­sented vi­sions for the fu­ture from 82 de­sign­ers. Visit: www.trash­plast.com
