Twende Green Ecocycle is a social enterprise that specializes in transforming marine plastic waste from informal settlements into high-quality school eco-desk. Our unique business model and innovative approach to waste management will not only benefit the environment, but also create job opportunities and economic growth for the local community.
Twende Green Ecocycle buys plastic waste from the local plastic collectors from informal settlements, community based organizations and plastic waste collecting companies; which is then sorted, cleaned, and processed in their recycling facility. The recycled plastic is used to manufacture high-quality, durable school desks and lockers. They also offer financing options to make their products affordable for all schools and residents of the informal settlement regardless of their budget.
Twende Green Ecocycle was founded in Mombasa, Kenya, with the mission of addressing the marine plastic waste problem in the informal settlement while contributing to education development by providing affordable and durable school furniture. Their operations started by partnering with local community groups and waste collection companies to create a collaborative effort to reduce marine plastic waste.
They also work with individual waste collectors who depend on collecting plastic waste for a living. Their innovative business model has allowed them to contribute to the sustainable development of the local community by providing employment opportunities, reducing plastic waste in the ocean, and improving the educational experience of students by providing high-quality school furniture.
