The Squirrelz is the ‘Alibaba of waste’. The Squirrelz enables factories to sell the material from factory defects at their original material cost, increasing factory margins by an estimated 5-20%. The buyers are designers who use the factory defective material to make new ‘upcycled’ products, cutting their material cost by up to 80%. The Squirrelz has two platforms: The B2C platform ‘theSquirrelz.com’, which connects designers to online/offline channels and consumers around the world, on which designers can sell products made from reusable factory materials. The B2B platform ‘2Stash.com’ connects designers and brands with these factory materials, relieving factories of their unwanted defectives and providing creatives with the materials they need to create new products.
