WHAT HAPPENS EVERY APRIL, 22

Each year, Earth Day—April 22—marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day had reached into its current status as the largest secular observance in the world, celebrated by more than a billion people every year, and a day of action that changes human behavior and provokes policy changes.

Also design celebrates this important anniversary by developing products and programs in compliance with our planet, its rhythms and needs.

Bonotto, historic and leader brand for creative textiles, collaborated with Miniwiz, world leader in circular, upcycling technology, to present the installation Gardening the Trash at Fuorisalone 2017, artistic direction by Cristiano Seganfreddo.

The Little Nobody children chair by HAY, that can be purchased online at designrepublic.com is lightweight, stackable and simple, and entirely made from recycled materials.

The Restore baskets by MUUTO are mainly made from fibers extracted from recycled plastic bottles, strong enough to be used for magazines, toys or even firewood.

The HÄSTENS beds are based on natural, environmentally sustainable materials to be reused in the future, such as horsehair and pure cotton, wool or linen, featuring great noise and vibration absorption.

PIJAMA and Offfi presented a collection of vase covers in neoprene in limited edition, in brightly colored and fancy patterns.  A funny and colorful way to fill your home with plants and colored design.
