There are many ways that everyone can do to promote an environmentally friendly lifestyle. One of them was donated by Elaine Yan Ling Ng. The woman who works as a textile designer with British-Chinese heritage uses eggshell waste as wall tiles.

The tile, named CArrelé, has become a hand-made eco-friendly product and is the first in the world. Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the creation of this wall tile began with an experiment using egg shells witnessed by Elaine.

The experiment showed that egg shells could be used to fill teeth and help regenerate damaged bones. He was also interested in creating something new by utilizing egg shells.

Every year, the UK produces 250,000 tons of eggshell waste. This prompted Elaine to look for ways to create something that could benefit the environment around her. Elaine's interest grew and she decided to collaborate with Nature Squared, a design brand that promotes sustainable products to create wall tiles from eggshells.

“This is actually a carefully planned sustainable scheme and CArrelé, the eggshell tile, was the first material we worked with,” says Elaine.

"We thought eggshells would be a good starting point, because it's a cycle that can affect a lot of people. Usually, eggshell waste is used in inlay art. But to date, there are still 250,000 tons of eggshell waste that ends up in landfill, so I think that's what moved us."

Elaine uses her skills as a craftsman to turn a large amount of waste chicken eggshells into tiles of a very large size. The egg shells used to make CArrelé come from waste that has been disposed of by the bakery.

CArrelé has been designed to be durable and also resistant to natural UV rays. In addition, the white lime material in the tiles is also safe to use and easy to clean. The structure and shape is also maintained because it has been bonded with a binder and resin.

CArrelé also goes through a series of processing processes that are carried out manually. The processing makes the tiles more exclusive. Not just creating something functional, Elaine also creates wall tiles that have aesthetic value.

"Through CArrelé, I had to create something more than just wall tiles. I had to create something that was functional, but still aesthetically beautiful and environmentally friendly," says Elaine.

The appearance of the wall tiles looks very simple, but that is precisely what makes it seem elegant. Currently, CArrelé is available in several color and pattern variants, such as a fresh but abstract patterned white, a distinctive burgundy color, black which gives a mysterious and elegant impression, and also a cream color which highlights the texture of a cracked egg shell.

Elaine and the team are currently working on developing the CArrelé collection by presenting other furniture collections, such as trays and tealight stands in the near future.
