Kaveri Joseph, Christine Lieu, Jessica Ching, Carrie Liang and Heidi Mok are Industrial designers and also good friends. They are: Designers, creators, makers, explorers, collectors, collaborators, thinkers, do-ers, visionaries, food and drink enthusiasts and ninjas. Conscious and concerned about the short life-cycle of products, TUG started an initiative with a mission to create a system of waste management that upcycles seemingly disposable materials into products of greater value and use. TUG – Toronto Upcycling Group – inspires others to rethink what they would normally label as waste. In hopes of spreading this endeavor, the PDA for Edmond Place project will be the perfect opportunity for TUG to show Torontonians the true meaning of upcycling by creating pieces that they can use and enjoy.
TUG will be refreshing the common area of Edmond Place with vibrant throw pillows and handcrafted planters.
