Carmi Y. Plaut (Chief Creative Smasher) is driven by the need to recycle, repurpose and recreate. “Our Motherboards are friends with Mother Nature. Turning abundant E-waste into art is a passion. So many people appreciate how we create home and office accents from repurposed materials. They are not only wowed by the artistic interpretation/creations, but also are inspired by the message that we send out there. Our products are made with respect to people, community and earth. We encourage safe, healthy working conditions, that protects the environment, enable transparency, and empower factories, communities and organizations to build robust, flourishing businesses. We support fair trade, conscious creation and mindful consumerism. Many of our products are made in the Philippines with people and factories we have known for years. Our partners in the Philippines are audited regularly by an independent agency that deals exclusively with fair trade principles and endorses, embraces Fair Trade standards and compatibility. We promote improving and protecting the environment and the people who create our products.
