Plastic can last
for more than
600 years in the
ocean. Bureo is
doing its part to
make sure that
doesn't happen.

Discussions about the environment seem to be everywhere today-in
the media and on Main Street, from teen activist Greta Thunberg named
as Time magazine's Person of the Year to the ongoing debate about
climate change on both sides of the political aisle. There is a never-ending
stream of information about crises around the globe, with consumers and
manufacturers alike trying to keep up with the latest developments that flash
across computer and television screens minute by minute.
In the design world, there's a renewed interest in producing and highlighting
sustainable products for the home. It's the right moment for action as
studies show "fast furniture"-pieces that are mass produced quickly and
cheaply-are discarded as rapidly as they are made. According to the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency, Americans threw out more than 12 million
tons of furniture and furnishings in 2017. Only a small percentage of these
discards are recycled because of the range of materials found in these
everyday items. As a result, more than 9 million tons of wood, metal, glass,
foam, and fabrics end up in landfills. Now, as bans on plastic bags and straws
take effect, and shoppers call for more environmentally friendly products
across all categories, i+D takes a closer look at some of the sustainable
innovators paving the way to a greener, brighter future for us all.
