ZEROWASTEMODERN.COM proudly announces the release and full operation of its ecommerce website, selling products that are made from 100% upcycled waste products like ocean plastics, textile overruns, and waste metals. The product selections are specifically designed to support local artisans around the world, and every product is “Fair Trade” based on wage and humanitarian practices. The focus of the site is sales of everyday items in a distinctly modern style. Products will made from non-virgin, upcycled material, but entirely “new”.
With global climate change awareness growing every day, new paradigms like ZEROWASTEMODERN.COM will fill a largely absent niche for a large selection of multiple brands available direct to the consumer. Product listings include Home Décor, Fashion, and “Lifestyle” accessories. The site is a multi-vendor marketplace open to any vendors who sell products and are able to execute dropshipping procedures for direct-to-consumer sales. There are currently well over 200 products listed on the site, with the number growing each day.
Joel Karr, the founder, is an architect who has worked for decades in recycled and upcycled building projects through his own firm. A particular focus has been upcycling of used sea shipping containers. Joel has built several projects around the country. Having sold his firm, he is now focused on the eco-friendly retail direct B2C side of the upcycled products industry, with particular interest in growing the network of vendors who deal in these products. Having found extremely limited suppliers to a drop-shipping market for upcycled products, he hopes to build a large enough network to support a multi-vendor clearinghouse with a specifically eco focus.
The site hit it’s “go live” date in May 2021. The intervening weeks have been spent in refining site design, and smoothing operational issues for a smoothly operating commerce site. An ongoing BLOG called “Planet Diary” is focused on research and updates to the global climate change story.
