Trash Café at Newcastle University

May 27th, 2013 by retail design blog

Students at Newcastle University recently teamed up with engineers and architects to build a pop-up café made entirely from recycled plastic bottles and cardboard boxes. The Trash Café is part of the University’s larger recycling initiative, which aims to spread environmental awareness among young designers and motivate them to use sustainable materials. The plastic bottle chairs and cardboard walls of the cafe will be dismantled and flat-packed at the end of the week to be moved to other locations in Newcastle.
