E for Good

In 2011, I set up E For Good, with Melinda Watson .We’re campaigning to reduce the amount of electrical waste (e-waste) as well as setting up systems to increase repair, reuse and efficient recycling. This is the focus of my work in 2012.

Meeting Giraffe (Nov12)

80% of all product related environmental impacts happen at the design phase. That’s key to Giraffe’s work.  Melinda Watson and I, with our E for Good hats on, went to talk to Rob Holdway and Celena Fernandez about e-waste issues.  We discovered that we had a lot in common.  Rob was involved in creating the WEEE man, which was a good start for me because I think it’s an iconic sculpture – now based at the Eden Project – and representing an average person’s lifetime of e-waste.
