Revive Innovations was founded by Kieran Devlin, a Bristol-based designer and entrepreneur. While studying product design in his senior year at university, he saw an opportunity in reusing post-consumer waste. He acknowledged that large amounts of CDs become obsolete every month and that each of these CDs is estimated to take more than 1 million years to decompose in a landfill. Through experimental design, he developed a processing method that produces a unique composite made from 100% recycled material. RE-CD is Revive Innovations' current project working to improve CD recycling infrastructure and create beautiful circular products. Revive has won the Young Innovators Award for this.
Fair & locally produced: everything is done in-house in the workshop in Bristol. The collections are therefore made locally and by hand.
Environmentally friendly: Revive uses old CDs and gives them a second life in their furniture and jewellery. Each item contains about a 100 CDs that are saved from the landfill. In addition, they use metals from a fair and sustainable source. The items are packed in environmentally friendly packaging material.
Vegan: The items are vegan.
