Malko – Less is future

Malko is an Italian product design brand that was born to inspire an eco-­friendly lifestyle, with “Less  is  future” at the heart of the development.

“Less  is  future”  is  the  slogan  with  which  Malko  talks  to  the  world:  the fight  against  waste is  one  of  the  challenges  of  the  third  millennium.  It  must  be  won  by  changing daily habits. Malko  is an  Italian  product  design  brand  that  was  born  to  inspire  an  eco-­friendly  lifestyle.  Its  mission  is  the  reduction  of  the  disposable  plastic  bottles  use  through  the  new design  of  the  Malko  Bottle. The  bottle is made from stainless  steel, keeping  your  drinks  cold  for  24  hours  and  warm  for  12  hours.  Hygienic,  leak proof,  taste  and  odour  free.

Luis  Benassi,  Malko’s  founder:  “We  understood  the  importance  of  being  part  of  the  solution when  we  realized  the  insane  and  irrational  use  of  plastic  bottles,  with  the  huge  risk  of  ocean’s  pollution.” The Malko Bottle project will be launched the 20th of June 2017 with a Kickstarter campaign.

In an effort to increase customer adoption of reusable cups, Starbucks is rolling out a $1 reusable plastic cup at its cafes starting Thursday. The plastic cups will be roughly the same size and appearance as the company’s paper cups. Starbucks will give a 10 cents discount to customers using the cups, so the cost is recouped after 10 uses. As with other reusable cups, the new cups will be cleaned with boiling water each time customers bring them in. In 2008, the company had said it wanted to serve 25 percent of all drinks in reusable cups by 2015. That goal has since been reduced to 5 percent. Via NY Daily News and Sustainable Brands.

Two young Swedish guys – Gustav Nisser Henrik Lindholm   have created this idea and just got ranked on Shortcut’s annual entrepreneur list “Uppstickarna” – for inspirational people below 36. The GreenCup is the alternative to disposable cups; a reusable mug that gets you discounts while at the same time reducing energy usage, wasted resources and litterin. Here is the idea concluded in 3 points;

1. GreenCup creates a network of cafés that all offer the GreenCup mug for sale at a price substantially below market value, as well as a discount when people use their GreenCup mug to buy coffee.

2. To finance this, a section of the GreenCup mugs are offered to environmentally minded companies to market their brand.

3. The consumer, the coffee drinker, well – people like you and me; we then get our hands on these mugs, keep enjoying our coffee at a reduced price and get to help save the environment at almost no effort!

Tap Water

Tap Water – What I like with this initiative is what it communicates – “People – Use tap water”. Buying one bottle is enough and then you can have it for in home usage. Good looking bottle for the dinner table

Material Invention – applied on reusable bag

The Lisbon-based design studio Krv Kurva has made this reusable bag. Shaped like a teardrop and with a whole bunch of different nice graphics. The bag is constructed from Dupont’s material called Tyvek (water, radioactive, and bio-hazard resistant). Thinner than one millimeter and weighing less than 40 grams, this bag is able to hold up to 55kg easily,…
