 “My intention is to contribute to an economic restructuring of the world, by focusing first on what is considered superfluous, the so-called 'waste' which is the result of an unsustainable system, and using this waste as part of an engine for change. The abundance of wasted material in this city was in need of being addressed, and this [career] was a way to combine my carpentry skills with that desire to foment social change. Our co-op makes upcycled wood products, including furniture, outdoor products and all kinds of custom work. It provides meaningful employment in an area that addresses unsustainable consumption and allows people to involve themselves in our story. Often, it is with the most marginalized that I feel the most hope for change, which is inspiring.”
