Recover Colors is a product line that draws attention to water quality and puts these wasted resources back into use.
What if you could recover color from our polluted water sources?
Recovered Colors is a project to reclaim and salvage raw materials while purifying water. These pigments can then
be turned into items that spread awareness of the mining of these minerals and their impact on our water systems.
The watercolors showcase the recovered color pigment project. Each color draws attention to a different water contaminant.
