I came with this idea because many of these cans are not being recycled. I had a spinal injury that changed my life for good, getting back on my feet out of my wheelchair was not only a battle but an eye opener. Seeing so many people struggle and not knowing what to do in their future I came with the “2ndLife Curacao” idea. Giving them a 2nd chance at life by giving a 2nd chance at disposed materials (pallets, bottles, cans, coconuts, jars etc.) With the products made and sold they are getting paid, we can provide guidance and help them live independently again on the long run.
The most popular of the products became the “love lights” hand drilled cans for a personalized candle holder. Cans take between 10 minutes to an hour to make, depending on the size and material. Funny thing, everybody loves the big cans but it’s the small ones that really shine the brightest.
