MAKE BETTER STUFF (MBS) explores the intersection of creativity, technology, and sustainability.

Run by designer and educator Xanthe Matychak, MBS began as a TEDx Talk about rapid prototyping in 2011 and evolved into a blog and workshop series in 2012. In 2015 we were invited to The White House Office of Science and Technology, received several grants for developing physical products using MBS design principles, and we’re teaching Make Better Stuff courses at Ithaca College. 

Make Better Stuff design principles:

  • Make with Responsible Materials
  • Manufacture in Low Batches
  • Make it Accessible
  • Make it Easy to Upgrade and Repair
  • Inspire Positive Behavior
  • Celebrate Nature
  • Celebrate Culture
