- PwC Innovation Centre, Shanghai
Doo+ Vibe is a one-of-a-kind event, which will be held for the first time in China, that celebrates social innovation and everything with a social purpose. What’s ours? To grow and maximize the social impact of all the dooers+ in our community and raise awareness towards social innovation, social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
Doo+ Vibe was born with the idea of building an ecosystem that brings together the major players in our society: social enterprises and startups, institutional investors, international organizations, global corporations, academic institutions, research and development centers, government institutions and the media. doo+ vibe serves as a platform for all those purpose-driven organizations of our global community to leverage their key resources and maximize their social impact. In fact, at doo+ we strongly believe that "together we are one" and we all have a role to play in building the change we want to see around us.

bottle swap station
Half of the plastic produced globally goes into products that are used only once, which creates a staggering amount of waste. It is estimated that 500 billion disposable cups are discarded into landfills every year. That’s one million cups a minute, every hour of every day of every year. Moreover, plastic bottles contain Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical used to make the plastic hard and clear. BPA is an endocrine disruptor which has been proven to be hazardous to human health.
The doo+ vibe bottle swap station aims to reduce the ecological footprint of disposable cups and plastic bottles, starting with each small daily consumption, and raise environmental awareness of their impact. Bring an empty plastic bottle and exchange it for an OPUS Eco Reusable Bottle, made of Tritan, BPA-free, super light, and most of all, reusable! Free-of-charge OPUS Eco Reusable Bottles are available for the first 200 attendees.
doo+ eco-tee sharing
Zero-waste design is a new way of thinking that forces fashion designers to challenge existing techniques. It involves fitting all the flat pieces of the clothing pattern like a jigsaw puzzle so no fabric is wasted. Considering that roughly 15% of the fabric is discarded when a typical garment is made, the cumulative effect of leaving behind no waste has far-reaching environmental consequences.
Lenzing Group is the World’s leading sustainable fiber producer. Lenzing Modal® fibers are produced in an environmentally responsible way, from the pulp through to the fiber. Up to 95% of the Lenzing Modal® production materials are recovered at the Lenzing site in Austria as a result of its innovative environmental processes.
