Profitable & Resilient


Collaborative & Inclusive


We start from fragmented ecosystems:

Plastic pollution and biodiversity loss affect every component of biodiversity hotspots and remote coastal areas where we work: local communities, businesses and the biodiversity itself. Yet, collaborations between the Parties to significantly address these crises are yet to be implemented even if all of them have personal interests to make things change.

fragmented ecosystems
Mainstream situation: a lot of obstacles to be overcome at once
low community engagement

Low community engagement & education

(low incentives

& limited actions)

lack of infrastructure

Lack of waste management infrastructure

(open dumping

& burning)

high energy cost

High & increasing cost of energy (affecting communities & businesses)

limited financing

Limited financial resources allocated to waste management & nature conservation 

(few to zero actions)

Example of the economic mechanisms within the Model

This social business model guarantees that each component will be able to be funded: revenue-generating activities (waste management and local businesses) allocating a budget for necessary non-profit activities (community engagement & conservation). 

The strength of the model is that it is self sufficient locally and additional donations to NGOs will enable the operations to grow faster but are no longer a mandatory condition.

economics of the model
A model to avoid, reduce and sequester carbon


of CO2 emissions compared to the mainstream alternative

avoid emissions

-175 TCO2 eq

/year /project

through plastic collection and avoiding open burning and landfilling

reduce emissions


for fuel production via pyrolysis compared to fossil fuels


for fuel consumption (pyrolysis fuel vs fossil fuels)

sequester carbon

100 TCO2 eq

/year /project

remaining to offset

Equivalent to

0.12 ha of mangroves

Environmental, Social, Economic Externalities & Impact

Our Model is designed to maximize positive externalities and avoid or absorb as much negative externalities as possible: we generate revenue to make the cycle work and end up reducing and avoiding some mainstream emissions and a generating positive impact on the biodiversity as well as creating jobs, improving livelihoods and foster economic development and resilience.
