Sustainable design is at the heart of true stylish living. More and more South African designers are embracing an environmentally friendly ethic, whether it is choosing natural, renewable resources for their products, recycling post-consumer waste, or ensuring fair-trade principles in their production.
So it’s great to see that the Shift is encouraging sustainable design at all levels with their annual competition. Young designers and creative spirits between the ages of 18-35 can submit their sustainable design concepts that will address some of the challenges faced by communities across the world. Twenty finalists will be chosen as the Fresh Talent for that year’s competition. The deadline is 28th September 2012 for initial submission. For more information go to the Shift
Shift has recently been re-branded by DEEP with a hot new design all of its own. Looking good for a sustainable future!
