Circular Economy

We keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.

  • The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place.
    Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy - raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be fabricated then transported to wherever it will be sold.

  • One person's trash is another one's treasure.
    Instead of discarding unwanted materials or wastes product, try selling or donating them. Not only will you be reducing waste, you'll be helping others.

  • To recycle something means that it will be transformed again into a raw materail that can be shaped into a new item.
    We do collection and processing of materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products. Recycling can benefit our community and the environment.

Every time you make the hard, correct decision you become a bit more courageous, and every time you make the easy, wrong decision you become a bit more cowardly.

Esther Matiku

Operations Director and Managing Director

The question I ask myself like almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’… Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time.
