25 May Eggshell Tiles
Elaine Yan Ling Ng has created eco-friendly eggshell wall tiles called CArrelé that can be used on just about any surface. Both durable and naturally uv-resistant, the chalk-white material is completely safe to use and easy to clean, as it is bonded with binding agents and resins to keep its structure and shape. Tons of eggshell waste are produced each year the designer saw a way to create something that would benefit the environment. Decaying eggshells produce odors, attract flies and contribute to methane emissions, which are reduced if the waste is reused before it rots.
