Affordable and durable building materials from recycled plastic waste
GreenTech Solutions manufactures building materials from recycled plastic waste. GTS sources raw materials from informal pickers and community-based organisations, manufactures and distributes finished products, and does advertising and marketing for the products. Due to local plastic waste pollution, another focus of the company is awareness-rising. The enterprise targets local hardware centres, companies, and households to sell plastic tiles, ceilings, gutters, fencing poles, and driveway paving. The products are an eco-friendly alternative to commonly used iron sheets.
