Gomi Used Non-Recyclable Waste for Its Latest Product Range

Common materials like plastic bags, bubble wrap, among other things are deemed as non-recyclable waste by the relevant UK council. Brighton-based design studio Gomi chooses to challenge this notion with its latest range of stylish portable speakers.

The chic collection is not only incredibly aesthetically pleasing, but it also makes use of the aforementioned materials. That is, the speakers are an amalgamation of non-recyclable waste. More specifically, each of Gomi's Bluetooth-enabled products equates to about 100 plastic bags of waste that was deemed non-reusable.

In addition, Gomi's portable speakers also have an incredibly chic exterior. Rectangular in shape, the products feature a unique marble print that has been done by hand. Ultimately, the project "intercepts a waste stream that would otherwise be landfilled or incinerate."
