#SheSociety rounds up this week’s newest finds
When you buy a supply of Forgo’s new liquid hand wash, you won’t get a single-use plastic bottle, just a small envelope. But if you tear open the paper sachet, pour the powder inside into a reusable bottle, add tap water, and shake, you’ll have foaming hand wash in less than a minute.
Forgo is an in-house project from the Stockholm-based design studio Form Us With Love, and the soap is just the first in a line of products that the company wants to redesign to shrink packaging waste. “Our methodology is applicable to everything from deodorant to toothpaste to shampoos and face wash and conditioner and so on,” says Allon Libermann, who is leading the project at the design firm. “We are looking to accelerate the process of transforming all of those products into this kind of thinking.”
SheSociety is a site for the women of Australia to share our stories, our experiences, shared learnings and opportunities to connect.
