Last week Premier Waste Management took the gold award for the Corporate Responsibility category at the 2010 PRide awards for public relations work.
The award was for our project with Newcastle College 3D design students to raise their awareness of the importance of reuse, recycling and safe disposal. These 16 to 19 year olds were at the first stage of their training to become the architects, product designers and artists of the future (the class has now graduated).
As part of their course I recently made a presentation to 3D design students at Newcastle College about the part played by designers in producing sustainable products.
Premier Waste Management is challenging the students to design sustainable products, or items that solve recycling problems, or promote recycling, in a competition to determine which designs are best for the environment and will protect the planet in the future.
