ecoBirdy recycles discarded plastic toys and turns them into colourful, kid-sized design furniture that is comfortable to use and easy to clean. Based in Antwerp, founders Vanessa Yuan and Joris Vanbriel come from different cultural backgrounds. After gaining professional experience in the international fashion and design industries, they found they shared a vision for creating solutions for environmental problems using innovative technologies. Together, they founded ecoBirdy, a concept which starts with the collection of old, unused plastic toys, and ends with the design and production of pieces of furniture. The collection of kids' furniture is entirely made of recycled plastic from European waste, and each step in the production process is centred around social and environmental responsibility. An accompanying storybook has been designed to introduce youngsters to the circular economy and inspire them to contribute to a more sustainable future.
