Ulrich Krzyminski, founder of BEYONDPLASTIC and publisher of the book, said: “When we saw so many great ideas for a world with less plastic participating in the BEYONDPLASTIC Award, we knew immediately that we had to put them in print and show them to the world. And not just simple printing, but the finest high-quality of bookmaking, because we are print aficionados. We would like to thank all our contributors for their wonderful ideas that helped to make this book happen.”
