The design platform for a world with less plastic, BEYONDPLASTIC, has launched a brand new book, on Monday 3rd May.
’So long, plastic!’ is an inspiring and beautifully illustrated book that celebrates the innovation and creativity in eco-design.
The tastefully handcrafted book with the refreshing title ‚So long, plastic!’ describes in detail 85 innovative and creative solutions that reduce or replace single-use plastic products. Also, exciting initiatives with the goal to fight against our society’s plastoholic behavior and the problems related to plastic pollution are presented in vivid text and impressive images.
The book celebrates the participants of the BEYONDPLASTIC Award, which honors eco-designers with the motto ‚Let us start a product and packaging renaissance across the world’. The solutions have been elegantly showcased in high-quality print in a book that is sure to spark interesting conversations around the coffee table.
Also, the 160 pages strong book features Award winning projects in stunning double- page spreads, along with interviews with the designers allowing readers to discover more about their activities. The showcases include Paula Nerlich’s “Aqua Faba Foam”, a biomaterial made from the byproduct of chickpeas, Rania Elkalla’s “Shell Homage” material made from waste egg and nut shells, and Allan Gomes’ “Coolpaste”
‚So long, plastic!’ can be ordered online at www.beyondplastic.net/book.
Ulrich Krzyminski, founder of BEYONDPLASTIC and publisher of the book, said: “When we saw so many great ideas for a world with less plastic participating in the BEYONDPLASTIC Award, we knew immediately that we had to put them in print and show them to the world. And not just simple printing, but the finest high-quality of book making, because we are print aficionados. We would like to thank all our contributors for their wonderful ideas that helped to make this book happen.”
BEYONDPLASTIC is the brainchild of Ulrich Krzyminski – an entrepreneur, engineer, and inventor who has an insight into the Print and Packaging industry. It is a politically and commercially independent online platform for environmentalists, packaging designers, engineers, and companies to present and exchange eco-responsible ideas, concepts, and solutions to replace plastic packages and single-use products.
