Ample Sample design contest will happen again next year. Tricycle, a sustainable design company serving the interiors industry, and other sponsors asks people to reimagine the concept of waste.

Carpet samples might be used only once, then discarded to end up in landfills, needlessly wasting non-renewable resources like oil used in the manufacture of the fiber and backing. Extending product lifecycles in creative ways reaps expanding rewards.

Check out the Ample Sample site and start thinking about your own submission. One of the previous entries actually became available for retail sale!
