Access System Change
Regenerate Hub engages users to consider the flow, impact, and value of resources across sectors [e.g. human, waste, energy, water, earth], how systems can be improved, and who is working to create alternatives on the ground.
Redesign your story with waste at our EcoSouk, the Middle East’s first circular hub packed with over 150 producers and change makers hosting refill bar, toxic free, package free, plastic free & re-use products and services. Built on dreams for system change, from production to consumption.
We made the world’s first stand-up paddle board for in-sea clean up’s designed from 12,000 cigarette filters collected in Lebanon. Support us to develop our maker space, art residency & regenerative farm lands.
It Starts With You[th]
We pioneered zero-waste sorting & recycling clean-ups at the peak of the waste crisis. Our most memorable moment, the #BalaPlastic installation with Mashrou3Leila concert!
The name “Recycle Lebanon” is a pun to
re[psy]cle the system from mindsets to actions.
The waste crisis was the last [plastic] straw in a crippling state where water, electricity, air quality, and basic rights dance in complacent corruption.
Headstrong to collectively, dynamically and holistically shift the story of our throw away society, the NGO sheds light on indegenous circular living culture.
