Do you want to make the world a little greener?
Are you interested in recycling, reusing and upcycling?
Do you know something about textiles, fibres, design and technology, physics or chemistry?
Then join our hackathon and bring in your ideas!
We are building a machine for plastic-free nappies!
Our idea: Instead of nappy waste, fertile humus is created that can be used to improve the soil and plant trees. 100% compostable nappy liners are collected and composted after use, nutrients are retained and return to the cycle.
We have already tested our concept in practice with some Berlin families, now we want to take production forward. Our goal is a production line that fits into a shipping container and produces nappy liners from regionally renewable raw materials wherever there is a need.
The development of the first nappy prototypes is through hackathons. This year we want to make the leap from manual to (semi-)automatic production.
What can you expect?
We will introduce the nappy cycle and where we are right now
You will learn about different renewable materials
Together we will find ideas for the nappy machine and work out solutions with pen and paper and also with cardboard and glue.
In the end, we will all have learned something new, let off steam creatively and had fun.
If you are interested in the topic, you are very welcome. Do you know people who are interested in this topic? Then feel free to pass on the invitation!
However, special knowledge is not a prerequisite for participation! We welcome everyone who likes to tinker and experiment.
