The Ca' Foscari University of Venice, in partnership with the university fablab DEL FABLAB, has launched a virtuous process of circular economy inside the University, starting from the collection of plastic caps, to transform them into new objects, thanks to the activity of the fablab.
If you work in Ca' Foscari you can also take part in the project, collecting plastic caps and delivering it to your contact person, in order to transform some of your waste into new items.
