Who we are

Founded in 2018, we are a group of designers and sustainability experts, passionate about making a positive difference.

What we do

We design, make, and sell products and services which support the circular economy.

Why we do it

We are passionate environmentalists, and we believe in following the science. We want to make a real difference.

How it works

Get in touch and we would love to talk about how we can work together to make a change.

Check out The Rubbish Project, where we work with recyclers and manufacturers to provide circular economy solutions which make true environmental sense. Our first product, The Rubbish Cup, is a 100% recycled plastic cup, which we collect and turn back into cups using a bespoke recycling system.

Design for print

We can take rubbish and turn it into beautiful products using one of the largest 3D printers available, Colossus, designed specifically to work with recycled materials.

Our process takes waste plastics and turns them into pellets that can be used in the large format 3D printer. We design custom products that can be manufactured on the printer, on a huge scale. Use recycled pellets to turn your concept into reality using the latest technology

Talking Rubbish

A key part to sustainability is communication. Connor Bryant, Co-founder & Director of Rubbish Ideas has spoken at IBTM world, Pride UK conference, Wincanton Waste Free & many more. With a focus on sustainability, our key topics are listed below.

Circular Economy

Is the circular economy the way forward? We look at how it can be applied to current industries and explain the unprecedented benefits which the circular economy brings.

Plastics

There's a lot of rubbish talked about plastics! We focus on the science and discuss the potentially beneficial features of plastics while identifying how to avoid common issues.

Carbon

Our planet is heating up at shocking speed, and there is no argument humans are the cause. There is lots we can do to help, but with so much misinformation its hard to know how.

Join The Circular Movement

Our current linear economy is destroying the planet and leaving us in a wasteful dying world. However there is a better way to live and ensure our shared future. We can learn from nature and its infinite cycles and build a sustainable circular economy of our own.

Storytelling

We utilise a range of innovative recycling methods such as large format 3D printing and closed loop recycling to create captivating stories which our clients can tell.
