"Put on your new nature, and be renewed" - Colossians 3:10
A joint report by WHO & UNICEF revealed that 2.4 billion people in developing countries could be at risk of potentially fatal diseases in light of a huge waste problem currently being ignored. At Present, 90% of waste generated across Africa ends up at uncontrolled dumpsites & landfills. Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy, generates an estimated 32 million tons of solid waste per year. It’s most populous city, Lagos, is estimated to generate about 14,000 to 15,000 tons of waste daily. Of that, roughly, 30% is recyclable.
To solve this problem, we will have to adopt a new innovative approach to waste management.
At Revival & Resurrection we believe that we can use design as a powerful tool for enhancing social and environmental change, in personal climates. Guided by this concept we pride ourselves on being a conceptual, experimental design company; creatively up-cycling and recycling Nigeria's solid waste into statement designs, whilst sustainably preserving traditional African hand craftsmanship heritage.
