WHAT is Junk Not!
We design so we can help make a good impact on society. Junk not! envisions to help, in its small-scale way, solve two problems that our society is facing: (1) Waste Management and its Environmental Impact, and (2) Lack of Livelihood of the communities.
Through Junk not! we find creative ways to transform regular plastic waste into functional furniture pieces, while providing livelihood to a community and protecting the environment.
