DESIGN OF ZERO WASTE HUB:
Here is a sneak peak to The Astu Eco hub, which was a functional warehouse and has now been redesigned as a Zero Waste hub.
Upcycle, recycle, reuse, redesign … we have all heard this. And now you can experience it at our hub. We hope to inspire you to try some Zero Waste DIYs. Check out some of our interior design elements where we used all of above
The old notice board – gets a fresh new look with reused fabric
The product console table, was just a dusty frame waiting to go
The reception table is atleast 60 years old and bought by my dad in a college auction… and now takes a pride of place
The cutting table was a much smaller table and brought second hand and resized with minimal wood to match our need
Two orphaned old small tables are repainted for fresh look
I still rent my table and chair.. waiting for a switch when the time comes.
Product display cane baskets are atleast 6 years old and looks perfect for the setting.
The wooden whiskey box is now a proud display for zero-waste coasters
The artistic wall art are embroidery loops inserted with waste swatches
The art work on the wall is fabric waste on embroidery rings
The Certificate display is leftover old ply
And all our machines are second hand by the way.
We support the small stores in the locality and procure most of our tailoring material from them.
With your support, we can make small changes which will make a big difference.
Our aim has always been to impact 1 billion people to move to sustainable lifestyles by 2030. We have till date diverted more than 6 million pieces of plastics with our sustainable alternatives.
