All of our packaging is fully compostable and when possible, made entirely from waste material by us.

Creating durable lifestyle products from Rubbish!




Our story

We are a growing community of designers and creators in Levin, New Zealand who care deeply about minimizing our waste. 


We started Refreshed for two reasons. One is because we love to create beautiful things that have tangible stories attached.


The other is that we feel we can be better kaitiaki of our resources as a community, rather than as isolated units.


Were Hiring


This is a new and exciting time for us at Refreshed and we are currently hiring for part time roles in Levin.

If you have found it hard to find work previously and are interested in what we are doing, follow the link below.

We designed a bag that is durable, stylish and made entirely from rubbish!

We successfully launched the bag on Kickstarter with some amazing support! thank you.

 Once we have delivered on that support we will be able to sell the Rubbish Bag here, until then you can show your interest by clicking below.


ANL Autospares

Chris from ANL supplies all our seatbelts for the Rubbish Bags. 

He enables us to take this waste material and turn it into something new.
