As well as separating the different waste materials, sorting through plastic bags and textile scraps and actually designing and making each product, the people at Cooperativa Nuevamente are now being trained to sell their colorful creations, in order to make this social project self-sufficient and sustainable over the long run.

A closer look into the project can be seen by watching the following video, and if you are around Buenos Aires and planning to check out popular Feria Puro Diseño starting in a few days, be sure to take a first hand glance of these fantastic recycled products at the Masekos stand.
