BANGKOK -- In some ways Wishulada Panthanuvong was born to work with waste. With her parents running a trash separation business, she was inspired to apply scavenger instincts from an early age. Now with a mission to turn trash into treasure, she has taken the concept of recycling to stylish new levels.

"I believe nothing is useless; everyone has the potential to turn waste into a new thing," she says. "I feel very strongly that by fusing the power of creativity with limitless imagination and determined action we can create a more sustainable future."
