specialists in reusing post-consumer waste materials, hong kong-based design agency kacama have created the ‘P.P. capsule’, a flexible beanbag chair. each piece is made from up-cycling 4,000 plastic caps that are then wrapped in eco-friendly fabrics produced by local seamstresses under the ‘neighbor plus workshop program’ to create both an environmentally and socially responsible product. most recycling companies require for bottle caps to be removed prior to the waste being discarded. the transforming of the post-consumer PET bottles and post industrial waste material into a new item is an important initiative as the recycled polymer requires less energy to produce than virgin polyester – making it a sustainable option for outwear fiber production.
