In June 2015, The Absolut Company launched a pop-up Creative Space in Stockholm to innovate around sustainable solutions when it comes to packaging and waste. The idea is to hack the areas of; reduce/eco-design, reuse/refill and recycling. Solutions such as own recycling stations, multiple solutions, second-life, no packaging/eco-design came up. The Absolut Company strives to drive progress in sustainable packaging, inspire their own production process and others - and to find a solution that could be implemented in production. Stay tuned for the next destination #absolutcreativespace

I'm biased since I was part of this project but it's fantastic to be able to work for a company which is so transparent and innovative and willing to learn and do more.

Creative Space is made out of old shipping containers with re-used material from production. They can easily be shipped to another location.

The Space has a fully functional workspace with tools necessary to create prototypes.

The Space hosted a hackathon around sustainability and was then open for anyone to use as long as they were working on projects connected to sustainability or social good.

I love this initiative from Ikea and UNHCR where they have teamed up with companies and academy to create shelter solutions for people who lost their homes due to conflicts and natural disaster.

A perfect example of collaboration and synergies between corporate know-how and NGO's.

Ikea has created 10 000 of these shelters which will be distributed by UNHCR later this year.
