Breathe new life intoyour old mannequins

Ever wondered what to do with your old fibreglass mannequins after they have had their days under the spotlight? Prevent them from reaching landfill with THRIV3 GROUP and transform them into brand new sustainable displays.

Waste separation is essential, and each mannequin has to be stripped of all fittings and materials that can’t be processed before being sent to the recycling plant. We use existing transport routes to reduce further carbon emissions.

Future Plans

We want to extend the process beyond the fashion industry. The fiberglass material is in fact contained and used in many sectors, especially the maritime one.
