Imagine, a world without waste, a lifestyle that helps Mother Earth instead of harming it. Hard to think of, isn’t it? This long leap of change will start with a single step..a step where you as a customer makes the choice of adding a sustainable product to your life.
Hi, we are Rimagined. We curate & create the best-upcycled products so that you can save the nature & be a part of the revolution! Rimagined helps minimize the volume of discarded materials and waste being sent to landfill each year; thus reducing the need to produce more raw material. This means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution & greenhouse gas emissions. With every product that you purchase from Rimagined, you help our planet heal!
Why Upcycling ?
Rimagined is committed to creating a more sustainable future by offering products that are rescued before going to landfill! We r(e)imagine the way waste products can be repurposed & give them a new life.
The upcycled item often becomes more functional or beautiful than what it was previously. Thus the word 'Upcyling', because the value of the material is increased! Upcycling is a creative process where waste is looked at as a resource. Materials are used in a creative new way, giving them a second life and function.
Think of Old cotton sarees transformed into durries, discarded glass bottles becoming a cool home decor piece, accessories from tyre tube waste.
We do all this and more through Upcycling.
Do we really need to buy and consume at the rate we do?
Before we go and buy ANY product because we can afford it, can we pause and ask ‘do I really need it?’.
Maybe we can explore alternatives like renting, reuse, repurposing that help us do our bit towards conscious consumption.
“What you do makes a difference. You have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” – Jane Goodall.
