In addition to reverse-vending machines, we own our own transformers that turn trash into things that can be used again – like aluminium that can be used to build everything from cars to chairs. And, because we often work in sunny climates, we’ve been able to deploy our ‘Smart Recycling Centres’, which use solar panels and sensors to make sure that the right kind of waste is being deposited. This helps us to maximise what we do without even using electricity. These kinds of innovations are useful in developing economies where resources are expensive and in short supply.
We’re all incredibly passionate – and serious – about recycling. That’s why it also features heavily in our social impact activities in the sphere of education.
