Business in the Community Ireland

Business in the Community Ireland have teamed up with rx3 and the Science Gallery to host the third Trash to Cash Competition.

This year third level students across Ireland were challenged with creating a product from waste materials identified by some of our member companies including Abbott Ireland, Bord Na Mona, Glanbia and Vodafone under the theme of ‘Recreate’.

The competition and the Trash to Cash Seminar taking place the 28th of February at the Science Gallery aims to highlight organisations operating in the area of sustainability and design. The event hopes to link companies and organisations with waste materials to designers that can utilise these materials to create new products.

The event will in particular be of appeal to businesses who have an interest in environment and developing both their sustainable design practises and understanding of the value in using waste materials. It will also appeal to design entrepreneurs, academia and those working in the recycling sector.

For a full agenda please visit the rx3 website and check our news section soon to see the winning students and their designs.
