Global waste is expected to grow to 3.40 billion tonnes by 2050, more than double the population growth over the same period.

REFASH (verb) - describing an action of taking an old, discarded product and upcycling it into a contemporary, useful, creative product for use.
REFASH promotes and retails products that are made out of post-industrial, pre-consumer and post-consumer waste. Any material, product or piece that has reached the end of its’ life, can be used in a creative way to make a new, beautiful, ready to use product. This is the beauty of upcycling.
