Job TitleCo-founder & Director

Company NameThe Rubbish Project


Connor Bryant is an industrial designer & sustainable entrepreneur creating products and systems for the circular economy. 


He is the co-founder and director of both Loop Innovations, a sustainable design consultancy, and The Rubbish Project, circular economy solutions for events. A key principle of his philosophy is to promote closed-loop thinking by considering the entire life cycle of products - and to ensure that the solutions proposed make true environmental sense. 


The Rubbish Project provides 100% recycled, carbon neutral, products to events, alongside collection services to collect any waste and turn it back into the products again and again. Alongside their flagship product, The Rubbish Cup, a 100% recycled cold drinks cup, they also produce furniture 3D printed from waste.


Through Loop & The Rubbish Project Connor works on a wide range of projects, from 3D printing with 100% recycled plastic waste, to educational recycling workshops for school children. The theme of his work is design for the circular economy.
