'Terra di Tutti' turns waste material into opportunities for refugees or disadvantaged people

Description: 

Terra di tutti (meaning "Everybody's earth") is a social enterprise in the province of Lucca (Tuscany Region) giving a second life to scraps and promoting handicrafts as an opportunity for different cultures to meet.

This project is aimed at creating employment opportunities for refugees and disadvantaged people, based on circular economy principles, by transforming waste material into quality handmade products, and at the same time to enhance different skills and artisan talents. Terra di tutti has a workshop in Segromigno in Monte (LU), which is divided into three sections: tailoring, printing/serigraphy and carpentry.
