Jessica den Hartog — Remade Textile
Almost everything we use today is packed. You eat your sandwich out of a plastic bag, we drink from a plastic cup, your eggplant and cucumber are wrapped in plastic. What would it be like if all these materials could be used continuously? The question is what you can do to get (y)our raw materials circular? My name is Jessica de Hartog, I am a material designer and I create new materials from plastic waste.
With the dutch design week of 2020 I will present 3 projects and 3 livestreams. Each livestream is started from a project in which plastic waste transforms into a new material. The livestream invites designers and companies to think differently about sharing our knowledge and inspire others to not try and solve this waste-problem alone, but to do it together.
