      • A three month project looking at the challenge of reducing single-use plastic bottles and inspire refill culture in London. My group's project was called 'The People's Plastic', plastic for the people by the people. We worked on questioning consumer choices to ignite a behavioral shift; so that individuals reconsider their primary source for drinking water on the go. The interventions also seek to make plastic water bottles socially unacceptable, to make it difficult to follow the mainstream which is to carry plastic bottles. We had the opportunity to exhibit at the London Design Festival in the Brompton Design District.
