EcoPlastile Ltd (Waste2Build)
Process waste plastics into durable Ecopoles and Ecofloor tiles
EcoPlastile works with youth and women to collect and process waste plastics into durable Ecopoles, plastic lumbers and Ecofloor tiles that substitute wooden timbers and unsanitary dirty floors. The products are low cost and durable, and help to eliminate plastic pollution and sanitary issues.
EcoPlastile generates revenue from sales, and communities benefit from waste management alternatives such as ‘Waste Medical Insurance’, a medical insurance provided in exchange for the provision of plastic waste.
