Youtensils


Sustainable Kitchen Utensils

Youtensils were designed at University within my chosen Sustainability module during my second year. My specific brief was to design a sustainable product using EVA and highlight the features of my developed design in one week.

Youtensils are sustainable kitchen utensils which share a universal handle made out of Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) which can be formed to the shape of the user's hand.

This increases the user's sense of ownership towards the product in the aim of increasing the product's lifespan. To further increase sustainability, bamboo was used to produce the utensil heads; bamboo is one of the fastest growing and renewable materials on Earth. The product packaging is designed to be used as food pouches once the product is in the user's home, reducing waste material from packaging.
