Retail: Retell. Recycle. Rethink.

Team Retail: Retell. Recycle. Rethink. / Wentworth Institute of Technology

Retail: Retell. Recycle. Rethink. is a student fueled exhibit in collaboration with Design Museum Boston. The exhibit was designed, built and funded in three months by twelve students at Wentworth Institute of Technology. The exhibition highlights life-cycles of consumer goods across four categories; sneakers, cell phones, water bottles and cleaning products. Retail leaves consumers understanding that they’re buying more than just the product, they’re buying the process behind these products and accepting their responsibility within the product life-cycle. Retail was exhibited for two weeks at Boston’s Prudential Center in August 2011 and will be moving to a new location soon.
