A Short Walk is a circular design practice. We make products from materials no-one wants, and we help others make unwanted materials viable, useful and desirable. Of the 300 million tonnes of plastic now produced every year, 40% is for single-use. That 40% alone weighs about the same as 120 million small cars, or 70 million blue whales. After its short life, most of this valuable material and the energy used to create it are lost, irretrievably, to landfill or incineration.
