The Rubber Impact Project aims to disrupt the bicycle inner-tube waste stream in San Francisco and beyond.
This rhizome-like project takes a unique, broad-based approach to sustainability by collectively harnessing various levels of design – data, technologies, products, experiences, systems and implications – to blend inspired design and human interaction to facilitate needed systemic change.
The result is an innovative, reproducible nodal network that leverages a community’s existing opportunities so as to facilitate increased sustainability. Inner tube rubber is an industrial skin with its own particular properties.
