WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
WE FIND THE BEST RECYCLING OPTION FOR YOUR PLASTIC WASTE
We collect plastic waste from our Plaf’Network:
schools, stores, companies, municipalities, hotels, beaches, etc.
We ship it to our warehouse.
We sort it, clean it, dry it.
In our plant, part of the plastic will be turned into strong, 100% recycled & recyclable planks.
We will create impactful long-lasting recycled products: construction material, boat decks, outdoor furniture, transitional shelters, etc.
We find the best recycling alternative for the plastics that cannot be recycled in the Philippines, including PET.
We are developing in partnership with the University of the Philippines (UP) our own formulation to transform plastic waste into recycled plastic profiles, such as planks, lumbers and boards.
We use HDPE, PP, LDPE and a fair amount of flexible packaging (multi-layers plastics, laminates) to reach the best quality of material, aligned with international construction standards, while having the maximal environmental impact.
We develop a large range of recycled products, including transitional shelters for the remote population affected by natural disasters.
SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS ARE OUR MAIN DRIVERS
We are a for-profit organization because we believe that the private sector has its role to play to change the world. But, we are also a company with purpose since our main drivers are our social and environmental impacts.
We work hard to find a sustainable business model to tackle marine plastic pollution and empower the poorest communities.
‘We believe in women empowerment for a better future.’
