ROCC Naturals, Sustainable Oral Care
Every year an estimated 1,500,000,000 toothpaste tubes enter landfill, all of which live there for 500+ years. Responding to this major problem, ROCC Naturals launched Australia’s first biodegradable toothpaste tube. Each tube breaks down in landfill in as little as six years and is engineered in a way to not break into microplastics.
ROCC Naturals’ brand identity designed by Date of Birth agency differs from other natural toothpastes in the market to offer a visual identity that’s both nostalgic and brand new at the same time. The design-inspired toothpaste is intended to sit proudly on your sink, not in your drawer.
The Better Uniforms Co., Sustainable Better Uniforms
The Better Uniforms Co. was created to fulfil a gap in the market for sustainable, premium and fashion-led uniforms. Their minimal, aesthetic uniforms are made-to-order using organic fabrics and ethical manufacturing, resulting in durable uniforms delivered in four to six weeks.
The company uses GOTS certified organic cotton from fair-trade certified farms, which means less damage to the soil, less impact on the air, less water, less energy and more support for the farmers and their communities. The company’s dye process is also certified to OEKO TEX 100 standards. Items are long lasting and competitively priced compared among leading Australian industry suppliers.
Convolo Design, H_Station
Hydrogen Fuels Australia are providing a revolutionary alternative to fossil fuels, and seeking to reimagine the future of vehicle design and mobility. In response, designer Sarah Ceravolo imagined H_Station – a hydrogen refuelling station for the future. H_Station is a modular construction with a light footprint on the land it resides on, and therefore can be easily and delicately relocated, preserving natural ecosystems. The site is planned for its first stage of construction to be completed in February 2022 in Truganina, Melbourne.
