Lylo is an eco-start-up created by two product design graduates focused on reducing the UK's water crisis.
They have designed a washing machine that reuses the water from your shower to clean your clothes !
We think this is a brilliant idea and look forward to seeing more from them

Osmose is a regenerative design lab with sustainability at its core. It is our goal to encourage a symbiotic relationship between people and the planet. An interdisciplinary design studio focused on regenerative circularity and sustainability in fashion, accessories and homeware.
In order to tackle our plastic waste crisis, Osmose have explored and reached the use of Mycelium to create fashion, homeware and other products.
