5R Hero seeks to harness skills, ideas and commercial opportunities from developing well designed new products and services which will reduce our ecological footprint at home, at work and in the wider business environment.

“Sustainability is a cultural issue and if we want to change the way we live design has a huge role to play in making sure that consumers find sustainable products more beautiful, more fun and more useful than others.  I’m delighted that we have been given the opportunity to engage new designers with this issue through the 5R Hero Design Awards”,
Catherine Fehily, Director for Enterprise, Research and Knowledge Transfer of the Faculty of Arts, Media and Design of Staffordshire University.
