Please Love me!

The amount of electrical and electronic waste generated every year by UK households amounts to over 1.2 million tonnes, which is the equivalent of 150,000 double-decker buses and would be enough to fill the new Wembley Stadium six times. Most of the electronic waste in the UK ends up in landfill sites, which are a risk for the local communities as they spread toxic fumes. Failing to recycle these items will result in them being disposed of in landfill sites or being incinerated. “Please, love me” is designed to use this waste and turn it into a useable ambient lamp. This project wants to be an encouragement for people in thinking about recycling today and in loving our Planet more. The lamp is compatible with energy saving bulbs only.
