Upcycled Oasis

Green oases are being designed with recycled waste

Implications - Those involved in urban planning and architecture are conceptualizing green oases that enhance the inherently ecologically friendly nature of green spaces, by designing them with waste and recycled materials. The reformatting of how these environments are built sets a precedent for urban landscapes seeking to reduce their carbon footprint, and transform waste in the process.

Workshop Question - How can your brand better involve itself in environmental protection, in either through its processes or in the causes it supports?
