About Us

“How we perceive value comes into a question as we re-examine the medium’s initial purpose.”

-Meedo Creisat

We are Meedo Redo House of Culture, the only eco arts and reuse co-operative in Jeddah, specializing in the collection of clean industrial discards and other high quality materials for re-sale back to the public. Every month we're saving approximately 1 ton of reusable 'waste' from many areas of Jeddah.

Meedo Redo House of Culture founded by  a Jordanian-American artist Meedo Creisat. He paints with recycled

plastic and cans rather than materials more traditionally known

for making art. And instead of a conventional paintbrush, he uses

nail and hammer, screw and screwdriver, and whatever his hands

can grab hold of to create his portrait work. He switches between

materials and begins to cut and laminate strips of what were

formerly plastic bottles and metal containers onto a reclaimed

wood canvas. Creisat calls his work ‘Meedo Redo,’ and the technique is

incredibly fascinating, as textures and patterns are built up by

layering plastic strips and smashed cans in patches on top of

each other. Up close, the artworks have a highly abstract and

often linear or striped look. Once you step back, the full portrait

image begins to emerge.

A recycling enthusiast, Creisat spends a considerable amount of

time collecting his materials, frequently searching the streets of

Jeddah for discarded pallets, tins, and plastics.

Through his work, Creisat hopes to show that art doesn’t have to

come from expensive materials and you don’t need a lot of

money to achieve great things.

Creisat has won widespread recognition and special appreciation

for his work from many corners, including the Saudi Art and

Culture Society and the Saudi Environmental Society, with special

mention in the Arab News and other media outlets.

Source reduction, or waste prevention, is designing products to reduce the amount of waste that will later need to be thrown away and also to make the resulting waste less toxic.

What is MSW? Municipal Solid Waste

Typically, MSW consists of: plastics (bottles, containers, cups, packaging material) wood-based materials (paper, cardboard, packaging material) organic matter (food scraps, yard trimmings) glass (bottles, glassware) metals (cans, foil, tins) mixed group of other material, such as textiles, leather, e-waste- appliances and ash typically accounting for only a few per cent of the total waste stream.

Where can we collect Municipal Solid Waste?

Sources of MSW include: private homes commercial establishments institutions industrial facilities, excluding waste from industrial processes

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)—more commonly known as trash or garbage—consists of everyday items we use and then throw away.
