The Story

We noticed a huge amount of beautiful, fresh and valuable single - use plastics being thrown into landfill from our local markets everyday. Through collaborating with these individuals within the market communities, we set up a collection scheme, enabling us to up-cycle this special material. These people are known as *Rehandlers.

Markets are a rich resource in food, culture and community, all of which Rehandle celebrates.

*A rehandler is a member of the Rehandle community who’s passionate about reducing single-use plastics. They collect fruit and veg sacks from their local greengrocer, market vendor or restaurant in return for up-cycled Rehandle rewards.



The product stands and business cards are up-cycled from discarded fruit and veg boxes, meaning they are 100% recyclable. They are made using a laser cutter... but don’t worry, no fruit or veg is harmed in the making.
