Merch collection made from the waste left on the Himalayas

The large amount of rubbish left behind by visitors has been a long-standing problem on Mount Everest. The project Carry me back and the From the Himalayas product line offer a solution to this.

The initiative, a collaboration between the Dutch design company Super Local, the Nepalese non-profit organization Sagarmatha Next, and a local waste management organization, offers a sustainable solution to remove, process, and transform the waste that has accumulated in the Sagarmatha National Park over the past decades.

Locals and tourists take the rubbish with them on their journeys to Kathmandu, and the result is the From the Himalayas product line, made from plastic caps, which offers scale models of the region’s iconic peaks. The resulting keychains serve not only as a reminder of the hiking experience but also as a reminder of our responsibility to the environment.
