A series of 9 products that XS designed in partnership with KTB, Mitsubishi's Indonesian distributor, will be on sale at the International Motor Show that will be taking place in Jakarta from July 23rd to August 1st. More than 100,000 people are expected to visit the KTB booth where XS' products will be displayed. The products, which were made from waste materials provided by KTB-Mitsubishi, include laptop sleeves, a tote bag, and a multipurpose bin that holds water bottles, trash or other items.

This relationship is one of four partnerships that XS is building with international corporations to help them transform their trash into useful products. As always, a portion of XS' revenues from the sale of these items goes to the education of trash picker kids and to support the teams of local people who make all XS products.
