UC alumni taking war on waste global

UC alumni Dan Price (Doctor of Philosophy) and Adrien Taylor (Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism) have had a Kickstarter campaign fully funded in 5 days to take their company Offcut to the world.

Founded in Christchurch three years ago, Offcut diverts the garment industry’s scrap fabric from going to landfill by buying it and turning it into caps instead.

Adrien and Dan are now expanding the business to use leather offcuts from the furniture industry to turn those into products such as luggage tags and wallets.

Even though the Kickstarter is funded, it’s not too late to back it and secure the slickest kit around… just in time for Christmas.

 

Head over to Offcut’s Facebook or Instagram while you’re at it to keep up with the progress of this homegrown business with big global aspirations.

In fact, rumour has it that you might be rewarded if you follow their social accounts and mention UC in a private message….
