The Objective: Transform salvaged materials into new and relevant products such as furniture, home décor, accessories, tools, and more. Put a new spin on a classic idea or invent a product that has never been seen before on retail shelves. Whatever direction you take – create a consumer worthy product.

The majority of the environmental impact of our consumption comes from making and using products. Materials reuse helps conserve natural resources and energy by making better use of the stuff we’ve already extracted, manufactured, and transported.
When we reduce our consumption and reuse what we already have, we protect nature, preserve native ecosystems, and create jobs while reducing air pollution, water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions.
These facts have inspired the inaugural BRING Product Design Challenge. This March and April, we challenge community members to create innovative and sustainable product designs made from materials available at BRING.
