Starting from the initial idea of 'sustainability and business', my partner and I have spent a lot of effort learning about people's daily habits and the current second-hand market. We visited dozens of charity shops and established stable partnerships with several of them.
During our research, we found that currently, the lifespan of stuffed toys is severely underestimated. The cleaning and caring process for stuffed toys is not clear nor standardised, which hinders their reusing and recycling journey.
Our project STARFFY aims to extend the life of stuffed toys by providing users with information and cleaning products which help them easily take good care of their toys. By making stuffed toys shiny again, STARFFY has the potential to create environmental and commercial value.
