WIITHAA is the Aboriginal name of an unusual bird. In order to seduce the female, the male bird builds nests that it meticulously decorates by collecting all the resources at its disposal. It uses dried grass, twigs and even plastic caps or straws. The Wiithaa recovers and transforms into opportunities the plastic that we consider to be waste.
Like the Wiithaa bird, the circular design agency Wiithaa ingeniously combines the economy and nature to help companies reduce their costs and build user loyalty through an approach based on differentiation and commitment.
Through the concept of circular design, Wiithaa identify best market opportunities, transform waste into resources and create closed and local loops.
