TED Project

Description

Over the last ten years TED has been developing a set of practice-based sustainable design strategies that assist designers in creating textiles that have a reduced impact on the environment.

All of the research is based on the estimation that decisions made in design are responsible for eighty to ninety percent of a product's environmental and economic costs (Graedel et al. 1995). This places a clear responsibility in the lap of the designer and is the driver for the development of the sustainable textile design strategies. Read more »

London Remade

Description

London Remade was originally formed in 2001 to address the overwhelming problem of London’s waste. Over the following years the business grew into a popular and successful recycling consultancy. In 2010 the consultancy side of the business was sold. Out of this sale the current London Remade was born, and began to concentrate on the wider problems facing London as a whole, not just waste and recycling.

Since then, London Remade has had an increasing online presence, investigating specific issues and inspiring debate on them.
