DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE
Greet is a friendly and inclusive living space anchored in its community through locally sourced or farm-to-table food products. It promotes the principle of giving a second chance to hotels (reconverted, non-traditional structures), objects (repaired, recycled, salvaged, or refashioned) and people (of unconventional backgrounds). With furniture and decorative elements unearthed from jumble sales, local artisans, and charities, greet is in tune with the times and the circular economy.
