We are a social entrepreneurship that focuses on using materials gathered from illegal dumping sites throughout Detroit. Our city has many problems facing it, and illegal dumping is one that hasn’t seen much action. We comb the city by bike in search of illegal dumping sites.
We take truck loads out weekly, bringing the materials back to our workshop. We try to keep the materials as natural as possible. Sanding the splinters away but leaving as much of the character as possible.
Detroit is a rough and raw place, and we want our products to reflect the environment they were gathered from. The beauty is in the imperfection. And we are trying to bring as much beauty as we can out of an otherwise ugly and contagious problem.
