Returning to itself

Returning to itself

Describe your design

Infinity is a symbol for the endless possibilities of the life cycle of objects. Every time an object is reused, it returns to its own center and returns to its own use. Often the most sustainable use of an object is the purpose for which it was designed. Therefore, this design represents reuse as an infinite loop in which everything returns to its original purpose.

This one should be disquailifity for its already used by a company. The company is Terracycle and they make CarpiSun reuse items for sale like backpacks and lunchboxes, just to name a few. Just saying I was fortne to meet the CEO of the company Tom Szaky and I don't think Tom would give permission for this symbol to be used.

First off, it is not the same as the other Terracycle logo! It is similar and is actually a mirror image. Important to note that there is an extra curve in the middle that disrupts the smooth flow indicating that we need to work on reuse consciously rather it being easy, as somebody else pointed out. And there are other submissions that play on the infinity concept.

hmm, what a coincidence! i did not know or intend that, but i think it might be appropriate - after all, terracycle also reuses materials to upcycle them!

A few people cam up with a similar logo but I just looked at the TerraCycle trademark and it's way too similar.

Cool and simple logo - the linking between recycling and infinity is very nice thought - highlighting our never ending responsibility to recycle as much.

Love Love Looooove the logo. The extra curve actually shows that it's generally not one simple circle, the process of returning to itself is pretty complicated and we need to pitch in to help make it a shorter cycle of return. Nicely done!
