Many companies, governments and individuals are aware of environmental issues. The shift from a linear economy – where resources and energy are abundantly consumed, produced and ultimately destroyed – to a circular economy where goods, raw materials and products are continually recycled. Therefore, it has become a key concept in driving sustainable and socially responsible business design.

Calling for a shift towards a global circular economy, FabCafe, with their creative communities, and Loftwork have teamed up to create crQlr, a community that enables global corporate leaders and designers to drive global circular economy design through events, hackathons, and other creative initiatives. We believe community-centered design is a way of capturing ideas. to create solutions to problems and unraveling the complexity together

  • Thanaboon Somboon

    Greenery Founder

    Drinking water with Greenery Water is a starting point to help modern society from increasing environmental problems. Plastic waste from water bottles is not 100% recyclable, unlike aluminum. Greenery water’s alternative material can be reused endlessly which helps to reduce plastic waste as well as the amount of carbon dioxide. Aluminum cans also have the added benefit as the can also be kept cold quickly under clean production. In addition to helping to preserve the environment also help deliver clean water to children in the countryside by donating to the foundation to install water filters in schools.
