How it all started

Revive Innovations was founded by Kieran Devlin, a Bristol based designer and entrepreneur.

 

Whilst in his final year at University studying product design, he noticed that vast quantities of CDs are becoming obsolete each month resulting in an estimate of over 1 million years of decomposition in 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, whilst creating beautiful circular products.

1.  Quality 

Our materials and products are handmade to achieve the highest quality. We aim to match the properties and finish of virgin materials creating durable longevity.

2.  Circularity

All of our products are repairable and recyclable back into our circular system. We believe in giving new life to products at the end of their lifecycle.

We take care in sourcing materials locally where possible. By using local fabrication, we support independent and ethical UK suppliers and makers.

Vision

We want to challenge consumer attitudes towards sustainable design, and create recycled products 
and materials that are as beautiful and functional as those made from virgin materials.

Through utilising circular economy design principles, we aim to create a closed-loop system where resources are used and reused efficiently, reducing waste and creating a more sustainable future. 

Mission

Our mission is to reduce the effect of post-consumer waste on the environment and create an alternative way to manufacture products using local makers and sustainable practices.  

 

Through buying into our products and using our design services you are adopting our values and beliefs, supporting our mission to change the way we consume.  

We are aiming towards being 100% material preserving in our production and machining of our recycled material.
