Reuse of plastic bottles. Pet lamps by Alvaro Catalán de Ocón

In the Summer of 2011, on a visit to Colombia, he was invited to form part of an attractive project focussed on the reuse of plastic bottles PET. Hélène Le Drogou, psychologist and activist concerned with the plastic waste that contaminates the Colombian Amazon, invited to give his point of view as an industrial designer on this problem.

As part of a group of creatives involved in this project, he could see that the pollution generated by the plastic bottles that we use every day is a problem that affects us on a global level. It was because of this that he decided to develop a project that would provide answers, from a design viewpoint, to this global issue.
