We are very proud of Lily McElligott winning our first High School Business Studies project with her idea that has become Coastal Upcycling.
The students of Year 10 Business Studies at Barrenjoey High School all had to come up with a surf related business and this was the centre stone of their studies. In the end they all had to present their business plan to a "Shark Tank" panel made up of ourselves and some of our local brands. Lily was chosen the winner, and through some funding that we provided as a prize now has a nice little start up.
Her first upcylcing product is a surf wax comb made from discarded skateboard decks, but we know she is working on some other great products.....so watch out!!
