Martin Varret "Zero Waste Heroes"
During a snowstorm in Paris in February 2018 we came upon a small store; La Ressourcerie Créative. Its founders Sergio and Georges aim to recycle, recreate and redesign waste materials that would otherwise be thrown away, part of a new movement that rethinks waste. They are the zero waste heroes. In Pantin, a town near of Paris, a huge warehouse is home to La Réserve Des Arts, a centre where Louisiane, Paul and Esteban transform plastic waste into precious materials for artists, designers and students. Thanks to their work, hundreds of tons of waste takes on a new life and is no longer burnt, buried or thrown away at sea. I wish to thank La Réserve Des Arts and La Ressourcerie Créative for their welcome.
