The importance of upcycling
In a world where preserving our planet is essential, upcycling plays a crucial role in reducing waste. IWAS, an expert in upcycling, transforms waste into beautiful lifestyle products, with a focus on India and Indonesia. At IWAS, we give used objects a new life, so you can use them again tomorrow. At the same time, we empower local people and make it easy for you to create a positive impact. Shop smart, feel good!
From Waste to Must-Have
At IWAS, we believe in giving waste materials a new purpose. Whether it’s a rubber band, glass bottle or burlap coffee bag, we see the potential for these items to become real must-haves. Our partners in India and Indonesia carefully collect waste products so that they do not end up in a landfill. In this way, we are committed to sustainability and reduce the burden on the environment.
The Handmade Treasures of IWAS
Our products are lovingly handmade by local artists in India and Indonesia. By providing sustainable employment opportunities and valuing the work of these communities, we contribute to their well-being and growth. Each upcycling partner of IWAS is part of a larger story, where together we strive for a better world.
It is important to understand the difference between upcycling and recycling. At IWAS, we focus on upcycling, giving old materials a new purpose in a creative way. We respect the unique, original properties of the material and utilize craftsmanship and smart design to create something new. Unlike recycling, which is an energy-intensive process that reduces products to raw materials for reuse, we strive to preserve the original value and beauty of the material.
Shop smart, feel good!
Upcycling is more than just turning waste into new products. It is a movement that makes us aware of our consumption habits and encourages us to make responsible choices. At IWAS, we invite you to discover the beauty in the diversity of waste materials while contributing to a more sustainable future. Choose upcycling and make a positive difference!
