BiographyRecycling is a language in its own right; by reusing existing materials we can create a surprising effect that bestows individuality on an object. Behind the words “sustainable development” and “eco-consumerism” lie a new form of production. ART TERRE's work-plan upholds the following principles: “To convert waste into a resource and transform it into an object of design, to offer an alternative consumerism that is sustainable and responsible, to minimise our ecological footprint by working along on the principles of eco-conception, reducing the distance between the different stages of production (primary materials, manufacturing, packaging and storage) and favouring the use of single materials… But also to work with local SMEs, social enterprises and the ESAT, a French non-profit organisation helping disabled people back into work. We have to take care of people as well as the planet!”.
