The emergence of large scale manufacturing and processing of products comes with long-term negative effects due to the increased non-biodegradable wastes. Qamay, a San Francisco based retail store, is one of the few battling these problems. The company's key mission is to reduce wastes and promote greener lifestyle by endorsing products made from sustainable, recycled and upcycled materials.
Daly City, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/23/2014 -- Industrialization radically refashioned the business world by creating a promising future through the manufacture and processing of products in large scale. Unfortunately this economic breakthrough has brought many long-term negative effects due to the challenge of management of non-biodegradable wastes. The result is the tragic irreversible pollution of our environment. Even though the last decade increased environmental awareness with numerous eco-friendliness campaigns, most of the corporate world consumed with profit maximization lacks the moral sense to take up the responsibility to make the necessary changes for a better world.
However, Qamay is of one of the few who want to create a sustainable future by focusing on staying environmental-friendly with the products that they endorse.
