not just a story

Vietnamese smiling eyes

Our Mission

Reduce the global use of single-use products by offering sustainable alternatives and products that will provide water and electricity solutions to rural schools and communities.

What do we do?
We challenge current production techniques, materials and designs via zero waste, holistic, cradle-to-cradle and circular economy perspectives both locally in Denmark and in Vietnam.
Why we do it?
It's not just about how cheaply a product can be made, but how a product can be produced responsibly, using waste, natural materials and limiting production waste
