Upcycling plastic waste to necessities with Envirotech
Envirotech is a recycling company in the Philippines that aims to support the recycling sector by fostering partnerships between local government units, local communities, and private companies by creating products from low-value plastic wastes (single-use plastic).
Upon collection, recycled plastic materials and other waste are re-designed and produced into essential products such as school chairs, furniture, and construction materials – the first of its kind in the Philippines. The circular economy model created through this initiative ensures that plastic is not leaked out of the economy and into natural ecosystems but is recycled at a rate of 50%. Beyond the environmental benefits, the products created after collection and recycling target the needs of the communities and other institutions, such as supporting local schools and contributing to improving local infrastructure.
