Social Impact Project for Materials Sourcing Experteer for Sustainable Product ReDesign
Project Description and Impact
Our company exists because the world has a waste problem and humanity is polluting the world with its throw away culture. We bring the circular economy to hard to recycle materials and help increase the utilizing of finite resources. Our goal is to become a global leader in the manufacturing of circular economy and zero-waste products. We currently keep old mattresses out of the landfill. On average, we salvage 60 lbs. of material from every mattress we recycle into dog beds.
We have an MVP dog bed that has sold. However, we want to make the product better before we launch our new eCommerce website and pitch to investors to scale it further. To achieve that, we're seeking a sourcing specialist to help us improve our product and make it even more Eco-Friendly.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.
1) You'll get to learn more about the circular economy and our unique approach to distributed re-manufacturing of goods.
2) Your work will help reduce the environmental impact of our product even further.
3) You'll have a great product to add to your portfolio and a recommendation from us.
4) You'll get more experiencing with sourcing sustainable materials.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
