Have fun and recycle with a very particular cat!

Tecnolab La Rueca  -  Spain

Designed around the character of a cat, Trash Cat, an online recycling platform, is lots of fun, easy to use, and made for everyone! Using an interesting and compelling points-based system, the platform helps users to understand the impact of different types of waste, and the importance of and ways in which we can recycle. To make it a reality, the young people aged 19 to 25 designed and produced a stick for grabbing rubbish, using digital tools.

In our Solidarity FabLabs, we offer free training to young people facing difficulties in their lives. They learn about digital production, team-work and maybe even lay the foundations of a future career. Our international challenge is aimed at them. It offers them the opportunity to work on a project from beginning to end and to showcase their skills and abilities.
