The process used for recycling the products heats them at 180 - 250 degrees, which makes it safe to use for daily use. Our products have varying lifecycle certifications as per their intended usage.

At some point, every product reaches the end of its useful life. The same goes for recycled plastic. We ask every patron to recycle their products - and other plastic products! - Recycle through certain household waste collection initiatives. This way, we can be sure that the plastic is properly sorted and recycled.

1- Termite resistant
2- Moisture absorption is less than 0.5%
3- Lightweight
4- Proprietary technology
5- One of their kind pieces

Yes, we use recycled plastic redirected from landfills and oceans. All products use up to 98% recycled content. We provide a carbon count of the products we are producing.

Yes, of course! We want to fight poverty by creating jobs in rural/poor areas. We pay fair wages. We also care about life underwater. By cleaning up the oceans and preventing new plastic from entering the sea, we help improve underwater habitats. Closing the plastic loop also means reducing the consumption of fossil resources (responsible consumption and production). We are also committed to climate protection: all our transport is carbon neutral. We also pay attention to our own energy consumption. Wherever possible, we use renewable energy sources.

We are a team of passionate individuals with diverse backgrounds coming together to mitigate the very existent plastic waste epidemic in the region.

Out of all the different types of plastic, our priority is to use low value and difficult to recycle plastic waste. In addition to PET (polyethylene terephthalate) used for beverages bottles, we also regenerate LDPE (Low-density polyethylene, like plastic bags), HDPE (High-density polyethylene, like shampoo bottles), and PP (Polypropylene, hard plastic, like a computer mouse).

Yes, you can- we accept sorted plastic waste.

We are located in the world’s sixth-largest metropolis Karachi, Pakistan.

We would love to partner with businesses and individuals passionate about solving the problem of plastic waste. Please get in touch with us!
