Margarita makes and sells oak barrels. Beautiful, personalized barrels that people buy to age liquor or use as home décor. A former software engineer at a large multinational company, Margarita knows firsthand the challenges women in Mexico can face in the workforce. She opened her own ecommerce business in 2009. Today she employs 17 people in Jalisco, Mexico, and is committed to bringing more women into her business.

Circular Economy Giving products the chance to have many lives and serve many people

Kenny loves the 1970s—and the 1980s, too. He’s been restoring classic Japanese cars from these decades for the past 16 years. That’s longer than Kenny’s been able to drive. Replicating and modifying these cars in authentic Japanese style isn’t just fueling Kenny’s passion for cars, it’s fueling a circular economy. Kenny is no stranger to the circular life of parts. In his last job he remanufactured car parts—diagnosing, repairing and restoring parts to perform as good as new. Today, he uses eBay to find the authentic parts he needs to keep these classic Japanese cars on the road for many more decades to come.

eBay For Charity Supporting your favorite causes when you buy and sell

Amid the stacks of motherboards, processors, chips, print drivers, touchscreens, and more—Marco found his confidence. He lost his sight in 2005 at age 17, and came to the Blind Center of Nevada in 2009. Here he met other blind and visually impaired people who inspired him to embrace his new life without sight. Today he disassembles computers and electronics that become renewed products through recycling and refurbishment. The products are sold on eBay for Charity—where 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the organization so it can continue its work renewing hope, independence and greatness in others.
