In Indoor Gadgets, Others


Vax the UK’s best selling floorcare brand has been chosen as a champion at British design talent. They are presenting a new design of the world’s first cardboard vacuum cleaner. This new cardboard vacuum cleaner is designed by Loughborough University student, Jake tyler. Vax cardboard vacuum cleaner will be released in Limited Edition, and it comes in more eco-friendly design than today vacuum cleaners.


The Vax ev is a high performance vacuum cleaner constructed for optimum sustainability, using recycled and recyclable materials that reduce the burden on landfill. The corrugated cardboard panels that form the body of the Vax ev are easily replaced if damaged and cost just a tenth of the price of an equivalent plastic panel. They are multi-purpose too, beginning their life as part of the retail box the vacuum cleaner is sold in. Once the cardboard parts are separated from the box, they ‘pop’ into place around the motor housing, without any need for glue. They have a flame retardant coating and are fully customisable – with just a few felt tip pens you can turn your vacuum cleaner into a unique work of art!

I thought. This cardboard vacuum cleaner is not eco-friendly enough if we are considering from the terms of its material, remember the board is made from the pulp tree. So, what your idea, is this vacuum cleaner eco-friendly?
