1. WALU

We at WALU are a group of 5 students and friends from Verdala International School who have come together to form this business as a result of our aligned interests in building a safer, more organized and environmentally friendly community.The main purpose or goal of our company is looking to improve the lives of young adults while maintaining an environmentally friendly status. We make carbon negative wallets

negative wallets that are made of cork

leather, these wallets are simply better than leather as they inherit the same properties of leather while remaining carbon neutral.

2. Crystal Cabins

We’re a JAYE company called Crystal Cabins. We make simple fashionable rings for a good cause! Our business is about supporting women's rights and the ocean at the same time through buying our rings and necklaces. Half of the profits made are donated to Women Help Women, an organization that campaigns and promotes the pro-choice movement and reproductive rights, the other half is donated to Team Seas, an international collaborative fundraiser project to clean up the ocean, because why not both? Our team strives to make personalized eco-friendly products because of our highly active role in wanting to save the environment.
