Connor Bryant

Connor Bryant is a circular economy entrepreneur, campaigner, and speaker.

Connor Bryant co-founded Rubbish Ideas and is CEO of The Rubbish Project, and as the names suggest both companies are focused on creating a rubbish (waste) free world.

Rubbish Ideas is a UK-based sustainable design consultancy which only designs, makes, and sells products and services which support the circular economy. Working with a wide range of clients from different industries to transform their difficult to recycle materials into new objects or back into the same products. One of the many innovative ways they tackle plastic waste is 3D printing it into large bits of furniture or art using the world’s largest transportable 3D printer, Colossus.

The Rubbish Project is working with the major producers and consumers of disposable single-use packaging to re-design their business model and create a closed-loop system for packaging. Working with clients such as the major brewers including ABinBev, and the packaging manufacturer Huhtamaki, The Rubbish Project has built a circular system for rPET drinks cups and plans to keep going with an aim to make all packaging circular.
