Opportunity

There are 2.6 trillion pounds of waste material in the world. You read that right. Trillion. If you’re conscious about the environment – as you should be – and want to make a living off it too, then this is for you.

 

Solution

Upcycling. Upcycling is different from recycling in that it retains the form of the waste material used rather than expending energy to create a lower quality product from the material. Reshakel is an example of an Egyptian upcycling startup that utilizes used products such as glass bottles and jars to create table lamps or old rags to make a couch. Artists who enjoy craft-making can take this opportunity to make useful products, help save the environment and make their own business out of it too.
