State of Green Guest Blog

State of Green Guest Blog
 

It’s with great pleasure I am guest blogging today on Zeoform. Tom Rivers and I have been tick tacking over the last few months when he first introduced me to his innovative product – but I’ll get back to that a bit later.

First I should introduce myself.  My name is Jenny Tranter, and three years ago I started a small online store named State of Green, stocking a range of lifestyle products that not only looked great, but were also light on our planet. Shortly after starting the store, I started to meet inspirational local designers, who were not only designing great looking products, but were consciously designing with the environment in mind ~ carefully considering the materials that went into their products, the way they were manufactured and if they could be re-used or recycled at the end of their use. So it was almost a natural progression that I launched the State of Green blog, where I share my eco friendly design finds.  I love interviewing artists and designers and finding out the story behind a product, as I find it gives an inanimate object a whole new depth.

Always on the hunt for new innovative designs, I was knocked over impressed when Tom got in contact to share Zeoform with me. How products can be made from a   combination of cellulose fibre and water is revolutionary! I can’t wait to share the story behind that design inspiration on my blog! Looking at the full life cycle of a product from cradle to grave is the way of the future. Selecting raw materials that are manufactured in an environmentally sensitive way, and later disposed of through recycling or by their very nature are biodegradable is the ultimate in sustainable design.   It is mind boggling to think about the range of products that could be made with Zeoform’s material ~ For example, could it extend to all the disposable technology that we are churning through and contributing to landfill?  How about furniture, lighting, sports equipment, plastic moulding substitute in cars? And that’s  just the tip of the iceberg!

I will be watching with interest to see which innovative companies and industries will test and utilise this material. Congratulations Zeoform team – you’re leading the way.
