This establishment practices or provides the following eco choices:
Hands of Honour creates employment by collecting and up-cycling corporate waste. Corporations are the main suppliers of this waste, ''donating '' their obsolete stock rather than sending it on to landfill.
Hands of Honour employs the ‘unemployable’ in South Africa - those who have experienced homelessness, crime and / or substance abuse - to up-cycle obsolete stock and recyclable items. Workers process the waste, either rehabilitating material or stripping goods for sale of parts.
Proceeds from this have two benefits:
• Provide salaries for workers who otherwise have no work options available to them;
• Profits are invested in derelict community spaces, focusing on public spaces which have become havens for anti-social behaviour.
Get in touch to buy or view their upcycled furniture, benches and goods!
