Reusable Waste Platform
1-5% of all things produced by factories are rejected and classified as ‘defectives’. A wrong shade of color or a misplaced button can get an entire batch of product deemed useless, and destroyed.
The majority of these materials are not unusable, but full of potential; they are clean and perfectly viable for producing new products with.
Factories have no effective outlet to recoup their losses for these failed productions. Meanwhile, designers have a hard time getting their hands on these high quality and low cost materials.
This is where we come in.
‘the Squirrelz’ is a B2B2C eCommerce platform connecting factories with unwanted materials to designers who create products with these materials.
The platform currently supports a dozen factories, over 40 designers and more than 600 unique, fashionable and environmentally friendly products, from purses and earrings to stationary and lamps.
