Waste or raw materials? The OFFCUT materials market offers a wide range of remnants and offcuts otherwise destined for disposal. In this way, this pioneering project extends the life of unused and used goods, turning remnants into raw materials and feeding them into a sustainable cycle. The idea behind it is not just ecological in nature: materials with a previous life are inspirational and drive creativity. In addition to the sale of remnants, OFFCUT transmits know-how and techniques on upcycling. With its head office in Basel, OFFCUT is supported by Engagement Migros, which is helping it open additional locations in German-speaking Switzerland and build up an umbrella organisation that will span all regions.
