At the core we love
recycling and building green.
Who We Are
We are a mission driven company with two agendas: First, to supplying home builders with premium building products that make their houses stylish and unique. Secondly, and close to our hearts, we are consciously working to reduce environmental pollution caused by plastic and glass waste by recycling these into distinct building materials that are aesthetically appealing, longer lasting and affordable.
What We Believe
We believe we are making valuable contribution in minimising the global carbon footprint by recycling waste to create quality blocks and tiles from plastic and glass waste. Our products offer customers value for money and more importantly repurposing waste that could have otherwise ended up harming our environment.
Why We Recycle
Urban waste situation
Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth 4 times. In Kenya alone of the over 3,000,000 tonnes of waste generated each year only eight per cent is recycled. The rest ends up in the environment causing pollution. Non-biodegradable waste such as plastics and glass worsen the situation as they do not rot.
Recycling enables us to maintain a safe environment by converting waste into new useful products thus reducing air and water pollution. We firmly believe eco-friendly building products made from various waste such as recycled glass and plastic are a solution to economical and “green” house construction.
From engineers, to builders, to environmentalits our team is made uo of dedicated people passionate about recycling and making better their corner of the world, one tile and a block at a time.
