Having witnessed the horror of the Lebanese garbage crisis
educating about upcycling and recycling have become paramount to us.
In a world drowning with cheap products with short life span, action has been slow, mainly waiting for big entities, governments, corporations to slowly adapt. Individuals however are nimble and ready.

Educating and demonstrating that Up-Cycling creates income from waste, bonds people together and saves the planet.
Sorted! Teaches kids and adults how to sort household garbage using an easy but addictive game with many levels of difficulty. The player wins points which he can redeem into real upcycled prizes and fashion items and have them delivered to their home.
The game wouldn’t have been possible without the technical help and enthusiasm of Anthony Haykal.
Gamified learning has proven to be very effective especially when the reward is saving the planet.The application delivered on its educational promise, all sorting, pick up points and collection facilities in Lebanon were listed. Sorting information, tips, laws and legislations were constantly updated.We salute local eco-heroes, congratulate youth and reward them with real physical Up-Cycled Gifts!
We launched the game during Beirut Design Week as an interactive gamified projection over the venue walls.
The event theme was sustainable design and Sorted was a perfect fit and generated lots of leads and created hype around the platform.
The first launch and promotion were funded partially by UNDP in partnership with BLF
As part of their yearlong program to promote sustainable development, environmental sustainability, eradication of poverty, advancement of women and good governance.
The development, prototyping and execution has been funded entirely by both initiators.We aim to create a brand that stands behind the creative environmentalists, the low-income handy person and the responsibly aware shopper.
The power of the individual environmentalist in the GCC is not being tapped into and many are eager to do their part and could benefit from a secondary income producing items of artistic value and sold online. Same applies for startup companies with local eco-solutions.Mothers, teens, artists and craftsmen are all potential candidates desperate for a reliable online platform to promote and sells their work locally and internationally. Any person of any age interested in cheaper yet trendy product with a mission statement is our client and supplier.
