impact driven mission


With the constant misrepresentation surrounding green technology and the misconception that green technology has to be high technology, in 2016, we decided to change the narrative through creative reuse of waste as a means to create employment especially for the uneducated and unemployable through skill transfer while also reducing the amount of waste on dumpsite.

We have been featured in several media outlets including but not limited to BBC Radio, Reuters , Washington Post , Aljazeera , GuardianTV, German Deutsche Welle, ChanelsTV, NTA, TVC and others.

we make impact, we also win at it

few of our success story

  • We won the highly competitive Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship award in 2016.
  • In 2016, won the Women in Business, Management and Public Service (WIMBIZ) impact investment award on recycling.
  • In 2017, we got selected by United Nations to represent Nigeria at the World Entrepreneurship Investment Forum in Bahrain.
  • In 2018, we exhibited our eco-friendly products in Egypt after been named by the World Youth Forum as one of African Startup Initiatives.
  • In 2019, we got selected to represent Nigeria at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Netherlands.


With more than 40% of Nigerians living below poverty line, standard of living is considered to be poor in most homes and furnishing comes to most as luxury.

 We have created an affordable, sustainable and eco-friendly line of furniture that gives the same comfort and confidence.
