Things were moving slowly for a while, but we're starting to pick up speed. We finished a months long process of registering our business in Thailand last week and are now able to move forward with opportunities we've been developing. We've also uncovered some new waste sources and spent time meeting with potential partners to find ones who fit with our ethos and have found some great organizations to work with. We're looking forward to sharing more about this soon!
On the product front, we're working on finalizing our first totes to take to market and we're engaging with a couple of communities of informal workers to get them trained and start production. We expect to be making those by September.
We also made great progress with our sunglass case prototypes and are looking to finalize that design in the coming weeks as well. There's a bit more uncertainty with this one, but we're aiming to have initial production going in August. More on this soon...
That's about it for now, but we'll be back with more updates as these efforts move forward. Please send good vibes as we work through the inevitable bumps of taking our first products to market!
