Mat Dusting (M-24) - 2013 Finalist
Entrepreneur: Mat Dusting
M-24 designs recycled bags from used lorry curtains and reclaimed seat belts. The bags are based around skiing and snowboarding. There are currently three main products, which include a ski bag, duffel bag, and backpack, each of which is completely unique because of the large variety of lorry curtains the business collects. Nearly 100% of the raw material is recycled and from abundant sources that would otherwise go to a landfill or be burnt. M-24 launched at the national Ski and Snowboard Show at Earls Court in 2012 and has been working ever since to fulfil orders.
