LEGO recycling containers by flussocreative
created by italian design studio flussocreative ’leco’ is a system of recycling and storage containers, utilizing the look and practical design of LEGO building blocks.the collection currently includes four polymer boxes: two smaller models in blue and green (for aluminum and glass recycling respectively) and two larger size containers in white and yellow (for paper and plastic). while these modules are designed specifically for the divisions and colour coding of the italian recycling system, ‘leco’ can be easily modified for other recycling programs, or used for other kinds of storage.the LEGO-like form of each piece enables the modules to be stacked stably in a range of configurations, since each box pulls open from the front and not the top as in many existing recycling containers.

Getting All Square with Coke

Alright eco-force! Get ready! It’s time to turn Coca Cola into…whaaa? An Earth-friendly means of distributing 20oz of soda! Coke’s always been a sort of futuristic thinking brand, but this would be a big fat huge giant leap forward in the right direction if I do say so myself. It’s a design for a much more reasonable, smart, ergonomic, and gosh darnit, it just looks lovely. It’s so green, it’s 100% plant based. It’s made out of greens! And it’s much more stackable. And cooler! 

I’ve overexcited myself.

I need a cool, refreshing Pepsi.

While I write this: The cap is 25% slimmer than the current 20oz bottle, and 27% more efficient because of its drastically reduced footprint. Something I didn’t know about the current PET bottle is it’s 100% recyclable, but that only about 50% of the bottles distributed get recycled. (I would have thought that not nearly that many were reused, I see bottles everywhere all the time.) The bottle you see here is more collapsable than the current one though, encouraging more recycling due to ease in transport. The bottle collapses 66% smaller than its original size. You’re much more likely to hold on to a bottle for later recycling if you can carry it in your pocket.

And the 100% plant make? This bottle is made of 100% sugar cane byproducts. I don’t think it’s as sweet as the good parts of the cane though, just neat.

And I’d better mention again: it’s so stackable!
