We create solutions for waste streams that would otherwise go for incineration or landfill, then transform the collected packaging into new products like outdoor furniture, playgrounds and park benches.

To achieve this, we partner with some of the biggest household brands in the world, including BIC, L'Oréal, P&G and Tesco.
