Empty Cosmetic Bottles Used to Build Upcycled Bench


SEOUL, June 10 (Korea Bizwire)South Korean cosmetics company Amorepacific Corp. announced Tuesday that it will launch an upcycled bench in tandem with TerraCycle, a global recycling company, to celebrate World Environment Day.

The upcycled bench was created using the Terrazzo method that combines empty cosmetics containers returned to Amorepacific by consumers with ultra-high performance concrete, complete with additional bins decorating the bench’s back.

The bench used some 1,400 cosmetics containers, emphasizing the importance of creative upcycling and environmental protection.

Radio-B, an eco-friendly design studio, came up with an interesting idea for the bench to encourage social distancing by affixing a 50-centimeter-wide flower pot to the middle of the bench, and leaving a 1-meter distance mark where people are supposed to sit.
