Whether for work or pleasure, travel is an integral part of our lives. However, our consumption habits mean that we are leaving behind great trails of waste every time we travel.

This display presents a project by London-based design firm PriestmanGoode that aims to raise awareness of how much waste is generated through air travel. For instance, every passenger on a long haul flight generates more than a kilogram of material waste. The total impact on the environment is enormous. PriestmanGoode’s proposals examine how to rethink personal behaviour patterns, and the infrastructure that makes up our journeys. Drawing on the latest sustainable materials, they explore how design can help us create more environmentally friendly products and processes for the travel industry.

The visible effects of climate change and pollution demand that we rethink our choices, both as consumers and designers. This is an exploration into how we can introduce new ways of thinking into a process-driven industry. While the focus of this display is on air travel, these ideas apply across the travel industry, with the hope of bringing society one step closer to a more sustainable travel sector.
