“I have been working in recycling for over 10 years now. When I started, I didn’t know how to recollect PET. But they helped me start, by giving me the tools and the opportunity to be here. I have been supplying them recollected plastic for 8 years now.”
Good actions, good people, better planet.
We create a positive impact in the environment, by recycling post-consumer PET plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in city dumpsters, unofficial landfills or bodies of water (Rivers, lakes, the ocean).
We generate opportunities for development to our supplies and small business owners who have found an economic lifestream from the plastic recollection and sales of these plastic bottles. Business owners who in parallel help to make a positive impact in the world, help to change the world we live in, and reduce pollution

In Guatemala, the process of recollecting recyclable waste is informal and challenging. The recollection rate is between 20% – 25%. One of our main objectives is to help improve the process and the recollection rate in our country to ensure more plastic is recycled and less is thrown out into our environment.
