Remanufacture is the process of recovering, disassembling, repairing and sanitizing components for resale. We use remanufacturing methods on products that are not salvageable via reuse or refurbishment.
For example, a broken ceramic dish can turn into a lovely new dish designed using the Kintsugi method.
A shattered pile of glass can become beautiful crushed glass wall art.
Used napkins, tablecloths, shower curtains, rugs, pillows, and bedding can become stuffing for ottomans and throw pillows. Used wooden spoons and other unusable wooden items can be firewood or kindling.
Kola Project recycles products that have completely broken down. Through recycling, we can extract the original raw materials that created these products and use them to create new products. Recycling is the last step our products go through during the circular process. Although recycling can be emissions and energy-intensive, it still helps us not exploit virgin raw material resources on earth unnecessarily.
