Michelle commented on Our Workshop + Nike Grind = Shack Life Solutions

Heath Nash and his team have African experience and tangible products that are already widely in use in both the formal and informal sector. These range from high end functional lampshades produced with waste plastic to everyday wallets made from tetra pack. These are in daily use internationally adorning boardrooms in London and keeping the daily earnings of a subsistence Zambian farmer save in his Tetra Pak wallet. Our Workshop “walk their talk” and are addressing dire conditions which plague our existence. Production Waste and basic human shelter.
Dr Jane Goddall names there three most pressing threats to our human survival as:
-Waste
-Overpopulation
-Poverty
All three of these dire threats are being solved by Our Workshop’s innovative designs and research to use Nike production waste as safe and economical building materials for the indigent
Our Workshophis deserves immediate support.
