Rethinking Recycling

Our Circular Economy starts at source

"If we recycle and repurpose waste plastic, the intrinsic value of single-use plastic waste would top more than $100 billion globally."
To create a new, inclusive plastic waste economy that is sustainable, we have to take recycling to source and monetise waste in communities. 

We have to rethink and redesign the waste plastic circular economy. Investing in communities is key and by taking recycling to source, we’re working to advance a sustainable and inclusive waste plastic economy that drives entrepreneurship, wealth creation and community development.

Together with forward-thinking corporate partners, non-profits and governments, we are working in South Africa, America, Puerto Rico and Morocco to create scalable solutions that capture the value of waste and generate new opportunities for waste collectors in communities.


Our Solution


Deploying networks of Micro Recycling Plants (MRPs) as close to the waste source as possible allows us to effectively sort, clean and process waste plastic on a smaller scale for sale back into the existing supply chain.


Our reclaimed plastics have much higher commercial value and provide a more viable stock feed for remanufacture into usable products. All forms of plastic waste are recycled by our manufacturing facilities and production partners into new products. 


Our goal is to remove as much plastic from the environment as possible and feed it back into the existing supply chain, reducing the need for virgin plastic. Ultimately, this will help our oceans and planet to recover.
