Restituo was created by Jenna Milesi, born and bred in Christchurch, New Zealand. Jenna got tired of the throwaway culture and started repairing her own things almost out of an act of rebellion, trying to be as zero waste as possible, and trying to make repairs more accessible, more widespread, and help keep shoes, accessories, toys and more out of landfill for as long as possible, all the while coming up with a shoe solution for those who can't afford expensive good quality shoes.
Restituo's values are:
- Aiming to be as zero waste as possible
- Material reuse/repurpose
- Caring for the environment
- Equal accessibility
Jenna is an entrepreneur determined to contribute to leaving the world better than she found it. Growing up with the Kiwi DIY spirit she has been making repairs from a young age, and seeing just how much she can extend the life of all kinds of objects. Committed to sustainability, she rethinks every detail of her services to reduce waste and protect everything she can from impacting the environment.
