As members of the Lebanese community, we are well aware of the waste problem in Lebanon and specifically in Beirut. Having conducted extensive research and field work, we realized that plastic bags are a big issue in our city. Not only are they used in over-abundance and needlessly, they are also not recyclable and end up in landfills polluting the earth and air.
Dobrag means plastic bag in Armenian. It was first created to function as a system uniting members of the Lebanese-Armenian community, artisans and designers to make sustainable products through upcycling
and co-creation. 
This project was part of Desmeem, a collaborative multidisciplinary problem-solving process involving European and Arab designers.
We also created an online platform to promote local talents and up-cycling through tutorials, DIY projects and challenges.
