Zweitsinn means a second meaning, or purpose. It's also the name of a network of innovative waste companies, designers and small German manufacturers supported by the University Dortmund and the DBU, a German government foundation.

All Zweitsinn products are made of recycled goods and at you see how much CO2 was saved as a result of utilizing used things for the production instead of manufacturing new ones.
