What We Do
Recycling Plastic | Creating Green Jobs | Empowering People
We're working to tackle the issue of plastic waste in Uganda, using our closed-loop recycling system.
Through our unqiue model, we're creating green jobs and empowering everyone to be apart of the solution.
OUR CLOSED-LOOP MODEL
The centres are placed in busy community hubs such as near markets and churches. This makes recycling easy.
When we receive plastic, we weigh it and pay the collector by the kilogram, in a quick and easy transaction.
We've established a widespread network of Community Recycling Centres across Uganda. This provides the infrastructure so people can dispose of plastic waste in a safe and environmentally-friendly way.
To incentivise the scheme and to help tackle poverty, we pay the collector for the plastic they bring to us.
We've spread the centres across a network, ensuring recycling is accessible to thousands and thousands of people.
Inclusive Employment Opportunities
We're creating an economic impact too. By paying people for their plastic waste, we're creating accessible job opportunities, open to all, including marginalised groups.
This is especially important as poverty and unemployment are widespread in Uganda.
Eco-Products & Sustainability
We recycle the plastic brought to us into a variety of new items, which we then sell to generate funds. With this revenue, we can continue to purchase plastic from the community.
Hence, our closed-loop system in action - allowing us to recycle plastic and create job opportunities in a sustainable way.
We're creating innovative items from waste - from something that was previously considered worthless.
