BenchLab Talented Instructor: Nabilah of Upskyl. You’ll be learning from a fellow eco-warrior who wants to share her knowledge with the community! A proud owner of UPSYKL, she started her enterprise to encourage people to reduce fabric waste and upcycle their pre-loved into new items of clothing. Equipped with this passion and her fellow team members, she is eager to teach everyone how they can take part in this initiative and work towards a zero-waste world. Nabilah wants everyone to know that saving the environment does not require big steps and it can start from rummaging your closet!
