Shanghai Nike store is 100 per cent trash

China is setting the green-building bar exceptionally high.

Almost everything in Shanghai’s new Nike concept store is made entirely from waste.

The store was designed by Taipei-based company Miniwiz, a firm that upcycles consumer trash and industrial waste into green buildings.

The Nike store was built using thousands of aluminum cans, water bottles, compact discs, DVDs, tension cables and other products.

All of the materials used to build the store are derived from urban waste and are mechanically assembled — not glued or cemented — so that they can be re-recycled when the store closes its doors for good.
