Every year, some 11 million tonnes of plastic waste reaches the oceans. This figure could triple by 2040.

Human Health

As an organization, we are commited with building products from recycled plastic and other waste products, in order to add durability, usability and style to our designs.

Through our community based recycling solution, we create awareness and additional economic value for local communities. Furthermore, part of the revenue is used for renaturation and reforestation.

The process goes from collecting the plastic waste to cleaning, shredding and transforming it into new, stylish and more durable products made from recycled plastic. Manual and artesanal processes are used, as well as tech with the use of machines such as “PetBots”, 3D printers, shredders, plate press and injection machines.

Furthermore, we create more environmental awareness and knowledge around the topic of plastic and resource conservation through workshops and courses.
