Switcher of the Month
We are happy to announce that the Switcher of the Month in May is: WASTE
Waste is all about upcycled and recycled materials into smart design. They opened in 2012, in Lebanon, a collaborative workshop where they employ talented designers and tailors to produce handcrafted bags, accessories, and furniture based on non-biodegradable materials from advertising banners.
"Perhaps our initiative can show them that with a little bit of innovation and thinking outside the box, people can still be able to work responsibly, ethically and make a living like this."
