Using LCAs to Validate Systems Changes

  • Why are linear systems ubiquitous when they accelerate the waste and climate crises? 🗑🤔🤡
  • Why are affordable refill systems so inaccessible?🕸🌱

Abundance & Waste w/ Tiempo de Zafra

  • Tiempo De Zafra stands for Time of Harvest ~a phrase used to describe the season when sugar cane is harvested 🇩🇴

  • The TDZ Team uses the term as a proverb. It is a reminder that we are inherently abundant and that abundance reflects all around us. It illustrates the work that goes into cultivating and affirming it while shining light on the Caribbean as a place of potentiality.

  • This design studio has revolutionized the “upcycling” market, by creating high fashion pieces 🪡 that have covered i-D Magazine and become one of the most sought after custom shops in the world 🌐

  • They begin sourcing at the local flea market 🌎  where clothing is distributed for resale from other countries (mainly the US, Canada and Korea) Whatever doesn’t sell will likely end up in the landfills. They collect these clothes in attempt to elongate their lifecycle ~ seeing their potential as material ♻️

  • Using these clothes to create one of a kind garments + accessories and shipping it back is their specialty 🇩🇴
