It’s Not Trash
Los Angeles based entrepreneur Marji Medina describes herself as a fixer and founded her company ‘It’s Not Trash’ based on her love of fixing things and making them better. About a year into the business she recruited her parents to run a branch in Northern California and together about 70% of everything they make is recycled.
Materials are found in alleys around L.A. and in NorCal they are found through the demolition of decades and fences. Marii believes in taking all of the broken and poor quality furniture designed by various companies to redesign so it won’t break again therefor fixing a major problem. Pleasure is taken from selling people back their trash in a form that will never become trash again, at the same price they payed for their pieces in the first place. Everyday people who would not normally purchase a structurally sound high quality piece of furniture are able to do so with pieces that are also unique and one of a kind.
Along with her parents, Marji feels like they are the luckiest family alive as together they get to do their part insuring the planet by making furniture out of trash whilst also making a great living.
