Back in January, I finally made my visit to Trash Kitchen! It is an open-to-public workshop space in Taipei, Taiwan, dedicated to spreading awareness about sustainability. If you find passion in sustainable design but don’t know where to begin, Trash Kitchen is the perfect place to start! (中文請見下方)

垃圾廚坊是小智研發的永續研發中心,同時也舉辦手作工作坊,有利於推廣環保知識。
Trash Kitchen serves as MINIWIZ’s sustainability R&D center and open-to-public workshops for seeding sustainability awareness.

During this workshop, we were taught the basics of plastic recycling, followed by hands-on experience of turning plastic waste into a wireless charger. The upcycling process starts with sorting, then heating, press forming, and ends with cleaning by smoothening the edges of the plastic parts.

Trash Kitchen is part of MINIWIZ but plastic recycling isn’t the only star on their sustainability portfolio. Founded in 2005, MINIWIZ has been partnering with global brands like Nike to bring sustainable material solutions that extend far beyond recycled plastic.

自2005年成立以來,小智研發長期與各種全球品牌合作,推出多元創意的永續材質方案。
Since founded in 2005, MINIWIZ has been working with global brands to bring innovative and sustainable material solutions.
永續材質創意不受限,從軟至硬,遍及時尚、建材、3C材料等各個行業。
The creativity of sustainable materials spans from soft to hard, across industries like fashion, architecture, electronics and more.

With over two decades of sustainability practices, MINIWIZ launched Trash Kitchen to better engage with the general public. If you are planning a trip to Taiwan, I highly recommend signing-up for a workshop with them. It is conveniently situated in Songshan Cultural and Creative Park with lots of design stores to spare your time before and after the workshop. 

Sustainability requires everyone’s involvement. If you are looking to enhance your brand’s engagement with social responsibilities, whether through material solutions or engaging workshops, make sure to collaborate with a consulting firm or a CMF expert with sustainability expertise. Feel free to DM me if you don’t know where to start! Let’s work together for a better, greener future!

垃圾廚坊的永續工作坊讓大家親手一步步將塑膠垃圾轉身變成了獨一無二的無線充電器。

CMF為Color Material and Finishing,屬於工業設計旗下專注於產品色彩、材質、及表面處理工藝的關鍵一環。Unwrap CMF彩材拆拆圍繞著這個主題,以淺而易懂的小故事拆解CMF設計的日常。歡迎留言分享!

久等了一年多,終於在今年一月造訪了垃圾廚坊!垃圾廚坊位於台北松菸,這是一個屬於小智研發(MINIWIZ)的永續設計研發中心,同時也是對外開放報名的手作工作坊,有利於推廣環保知識。如果你對永續設計感到好奇卻不知道從何下手,垃圾廚坊的工作坊真的非常適合邁出第一步!

在這次的工作坊中,我們學到了塑膠回收的基礎知識,並親手一步步將塑膠垃圾轉身變成了獨一無二的無線充電器。這個回收再利用的步驟從塑膠分類開始,經過加熱、壓制成形,再最後清潔修整毛邊。,非常充實而且很簡單易懂,連小學生都會成班來上課真的一點也不意外。

可以用不同色的塑膠廢料設計自己的充電器。

垃圾廚坊隸屬於小智研發旗下,但塑膠回收並不是他們永續解決方案中的唯一亮點。小智研發成立於2005年,一直與像Nike這樣的全球品牌合作,運用各種不同的永續材質推動可持續性發展。

經過二十幾年的永續實踐,小智研發更是推出了垃圾廚坊,以更好地與大眾互動。如果你最近要去台北或者已經住在台北,我真的非常強烈推薦垃圾廚坊無線充電器的工作坊,而且人多還有團購價,超級適合設計團隊的team building~!

永續發展需要每個人的參與。如果你想提升品牌在社會責任方面的投入,無論是通過永續材質或是民眾參與的工作坊,最重要的是找到具備永續專業的諮詢團隊或CMF專家一起合作。如果不知道從何起步也歡迎私訊聊聊,讓我們為美好的綠色未來一起努力💚
