Turning Plastic Waste into Eco-Products
In partnership with the community, we're using our closed-loop system to clean up the problem of plastic waste in Uganda.
Then, we're transforming the waste into new innovative items of value: Eco-Products
We sell these items on the open market to generate revenue.
Using these funds, we can then purchase more plastic from the community.
Sustaining our Model
By transforming waste into something of value, we're ensuring nothing is wasted - the plastic can be given a new use.
Building a Circular, Sustainable Economy
Like the lack of waste management systems in Uganda, there is also a shortage of environmentally friendly products on the market.
We're offering something different, and in many cases superior to the traditional model...
We're transforming discarded plastic waste into these items...
These are similar to our bricks but are specially made for flooring, with interlocking elements to securely cover the surface that they are laid upon. This alternative to concrete has a variety of uses, especially outside, and can be used for: roads, driveways, patios, firepits, walkways, and playgrounds.
Lumber is one of the key items we produce from plastic waste, providing the foundation for a number of our Eco-Products.
Each pole recycles 6kg of plastic and is stronger than wood, with joints that can be securely fixed without nails/glue, which you can see here.
