Trash is sorted out and waits on the step door to be transported. People are living all around the trash. They come from the countryside and have been paid to come to the city and work as trash-pickers. Social impact: The NGO we work with purchases the trash and gives back 5% of its sales to pay the scholarships of 56 children. Our Goal by Selling the finished products is to improve the conditions of life of the trash pickers.
The trash is cut and assembled following the design elaborated by the local designer.
After being cut, each part is sewed. The NGO employs 15 people from needy communities.
Last step of the process: Quality control before the expedition.
