The bio material category strikes a competitive note in designers who wish to contribute to a greener future and that is good. The necessity for preserving the planet and contradicting the effects of climate change has pushed innovators to come up with spectacular concepts and prototypes, some of which are already in the phase of implementation.
The latest news in bio material development is MarinaTex which targets the abolition of single-use plastics in packaging. The product is developed by Lucy Hughes – a graduate from the University of Sussex. Her bio material is made from repurposed fish scales and skin. MarinaTex t is fully biodegradable in four to six weeks and is ideal as a substitute for plastic bags or food wraps.
Lucy Hughes’ project is also recognized for its eco-forward merit with the UK James Dyson Award.
