Based in Belgium’s fashion and design capital, Antwerp, ecoBirdy was started by Vanessa Yuan and Joris Vanbriel with an aim to combat the overflowing plastic pollution with an unconventional weapon. ecoBirdy transforms old plastic toys into beautiful design furniture for kids through a rigorous process of recycling and upcycling.
