Share Your Design!

Joselyn McDonald

Now it’s time to show the world your idea for a sustainable packaging solution! 

You will be able to submit your work between Tuesday 18th May and Friday 18th June.  You will receive a Certificate of Achievement and, if you choose, your work will be included in an online gallery showcasing our students' work.  If you are aged 16-18, you will also be eligible to be considered for an opportunity to undertake mentoring with Morwen Mands, Head of Sustainability at Highland Spring Group.  This opportunity will be offered to a student who submits an outstanding piece of work.   

You will need to submit the following:

  1. Your 2-3 sentence reflection on a bioplastic or plastic alternative example that you investigated (from Step 1) 

  2. Your 3-4 sentence reflection from Step 2 (where you collected packaging materials) 

  3. 3 (or more) photos of your bioplastic making process (from Step 3)

  4. Your concept sketch (from Step 4) 

  5. A brief (3-4 sentence) description of the concept behind your sketch that answers some of the following questions:

    1. What problem does your design solve?

    2. When/ how would someone use your design?

    3. How will your design reduce plastic waste in future? 

Bonus:  Add images of a physical prototype of your concept using bioplastic to your submission. This additional step is not required, but if you made a physical object, we'd love to see it!
