What is the Nuovo Nuovo's Save Your City Campaign?

Many of us know of environmental waste and how this is a growing problem, we hear organisations, companies even politicians talking about these issues all the time, some of them act but many do not. Nuovo Nuovo has decided to do a little something about the issues we have identified within our own industry using the tools we have at our disposal. 

ITALIAN - Molti di noi sono a conoscenza del sempre più crescente problema degli sprechi ambientali; se ne fa un gran parlare tra organizzazioni mondiali, aziende e persino politici, ma tuttavia sono in pochi ad agire effettivamente. Nuovo Nuovo ha deciso di fare qualcosa a riguardo all’interno del nostro settore, utilizzando gli strumenti a nostra disposizione. 

We want to help save our cities by encouraging others to be creative in the way we get rid of waste.

ITALIAN - Vogliamo salvare la nostra città incoraggiando anche gli altri ad essere creativi e a sbarazzarci dello spreco.

Concept Of Nuovo Nuovo

#Fun fact - the word 'nuovo' means new in Italian. 

Our idea is to create new product designs that are fun and functional from recycled materials, off-cut materials and waste materials we can get our hands on. We decided to start off small and simple with wood, plenty of it goes to waste in our industry as off-cuts; these are the remaining pieces that are classed as 'of no use' in the production processes. We collect these off-cuts create some design concepts based on a few things such as size, colour and type, we then use CNC processes, hand tools and in some cases laser cutting to bring the designs to life.

ITALIAN - La nostra idea è quella di creare oggetti di design che siano simpatici e funzionali al contempo, partendo dall’utilizzo di materiali riciclati e materiali di scarto. Abbiamo deciso di cominciare dalle cose semplici come il legno, di cui una gran parte è sprecata nel corso delle lavorazioni e produzioni industriali. Noi raccogliamo questi “scarti” e creiamo oggetti basandoci e lasciandoci ispirare da caratteristiche quali le dimensioni, il colore e la tipologia di legno: passiamo poi all’utilizzo di CNC, taglio laser terminando il tutto con rifiniture manuali, dando vita così ai nostri progetti.

It's time to CNC - YAY :-)

Very Important Numbers!

Figures were published this year showing that wood waste in England's commerical + industrial sectors combined was estimated to be around 30 million tonnes...wow, this is just wood waste! 

ITALIAN - I dati publicati quest’anno indicano uno spreco di legname nei settori commerciali ed industriali inglesi pari a circa 30 milioni di tonnellate...quel che si chiama un vero e proprio spreco! 

If England is a relatively small country producing such high quantities, imagine the numbers in other countries and cities. 

ITALIAN - Se l’Inghilterra è un paese relativamente piccolo e produce quantità così elevate, è facile immaginate i numeri dei paesi più grandi.

Let's take a basic hypothetical, if every household in England had a dining table and chairs made from recycled wood it would decrease the waste produced by the C&I sectors by almost 90%...however, we know it doesn't work like that but Nuovo Nuovo wants to start somewhere and you can help by claiming some of this in the form of useful and fun products.

ITALIAN - Ragionando per assurdo, se ogni casa in Inghilterra avesse un tavolo e delle sedie ricavate da legno riciclato ciò determinerebbe una riduzione dello spreco di materiale nel settore industriale e commerciale pari al 90%…sappiamo però che le cose non sono così semplici. Per questo Nuovo Nuovo ha deciso di agire, cominciando dalle piccole cose e anche tu puoi dare il tuo contributo acquistando i nostri prodotti.

The Future Is Sustainable

Our 4 main goals for this campagin are: 

  • Raise more awareness of environmental waste in cities...which means..
  • We can source and aquire new waste materials such as plastics and metals...which means...
  • We have to purchase better tools and machines for creating more complex and better designs...which means... 
  • We can build and open our own design studio/workshop with our own resources and equipment and a bigger team of designers...which means the cycle can restart again and slowly grow bigger and better!

ITALIAN - I nostri 4 obiettivi per questa campagna sono:

  • Aumentare la consapevolezza dello spreco ambientale nelle città… che si traduce in…
  • La possibilità di ricavare ed ottenere un numero maggiore di materiali di scarto quali plastica e metalli…che si traduce in…
  • La necessità di investire in attrezzi e macchinari migliori per la creazione di design più complessi…che si traduce in…
  • Costruire ed aprire uno studio/ laboratorio di design con le nostre risorse e la nostra apparecchiatura ed una squadra di designers accresciuta in numero….che si traduce in il ciclo che può ricominciare e crescere sempre più.

Meet Our Ambassadors

We decided to created a few fun products that are useful. Some of them are inspired by something, some are just cool...have a look.

ITALIAN - Abbiamo deciso di creare un po’ di prodotti divertenti ed utili. Alcuni traggono ispirazione da qualcosa, altri sono semplicemente “cool”…date un’occhiata!

Our Progress...

Risks and challenges

Tiimelines:

We aim to produce and ship products just in time for the Christmas holidays 2018, many of the items would be perfect gifts. As you can appreciate this is a very challenging period especially for deliveries particularly international but we will do our best to get them there.

Quality:

It's quite challenging to keep extremely high standards of quality in the products we produce simply because of the nature of the raw materials we have, we also have limited machinery and resources however our experience in the industry will help us do thorough quality control checks on all products before we ship them out to backers.

Materials:

We assess the potential risks of different materials and thier initial intended use before we source and reuse them, we are commited to using safe quality materials for all the designs we create. Once we grow and a company our material checks will become more stringent and refined.
