Nespresso + fashion

Have you ever wondered how many Nespresso® machines there are on campus or at the home of ANU’ers? In this project, which is wholly un-affiliated with Nespresso, we will seek to collect ‘pods’, of the type made from aluminium, and even the type made from plastic, and recycle the pods into valuable products, such as jewellery. This project will need a passion for recycling, for people, for project management, and indeed making stuff by hand (using materials science).



Collect, sort, process, and value add. You will turn on persons trash into another persons treasure.



The project will involve coordinating with people (collection of items) and also, will involve manual manufacturing and product making.


recycling, metals, polymers, fashion, awesome
