We Are Driven And Committed To Creating A Better Future!
An endeavor began modestly by a husband and wife that grew into a full-fledged service. We relocated to the UAE over a decade ago and like many others, relocated several times throughout our time in the UAE and struggled to sell items we no longer needed.
As a result, we spent the majority of our time calling local waste disposal firms to dispose of items that we couldn’t sell owing to the high cost of storage.
We’ve always thought that if someone could gather and restore old items, store them, and sell them at a low cost, society would benefit while also making living more sustainable. Unfortunately, such an alternative was few.
We started the Facebook group in 2016 to allow community members to give, get, and exchange items with one another. Within a few months, the group had grown to thousands of members, reflecting the enthusiasm of the wider UAE community. That inspired us to take the next step in tackling this issue and giving a one-of-a-kind solution to UAE residents (both locals and expatriates) by launching Think Upcycle Company with Yalla Junk. It as a free junk and unwanted furniture collecting service.
