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.
