PHASE 1: UNLOCKING TOURISM along the west african coastline

The business pitch

We unlock waste's true potential so it can contribute to a circular economy where it generates value once more.

1. Map out areas of touristic interest
We're working with local partners such as hotels and property developers to identify beaches of outstanding value for tourism.
2. Let the machines take over...
In order to clean beaches of litter and waste that pollutes our land and oceans, we plan to introduce machinery wherever possible to speed up the cleaning process.
3. ... And help create local jobs
We believe that small (and local) is beautiful. We will create new jobs in operating and transporting our machinery as well as recycling plastic waste into valuable goods to sell in local markets

Our mission

To collect waste left behind by the system and connect it back to the economy. 

The waste crisis

"The vast majority [of plastics] - 79% - is accumulating in landfills [...] meaning that at some point, much of it ends up in the oceans, the final sink." (National Geographic)

With half of the US sending its waste to landfill (137.7 million tons per year) and European countries behaving just as poorly, it's safe to say that we are facing a monumental crisis.

We're gifting a polluted plastic world to our children and grandchildren.

We now know that waste, plastic or otherwise, accumulates on beaches and coastlines for several years before inhabiting the oceans permanently.

This is the reason behind the phenomenon known as "missing plastic". Millions of tons of plastic haven't yet reached the oceans and are currently living between land and sea on beaches around the world.

This is our opportunity. This is our time to act and our chance for redemption. This is when we get to look at our children without guilt.

Re-inventing waste collection

"As entrepreneurs, we believe that technology has failed to deliver the positive changes it promised. It has focused on vain innovations and contributed to generate tons of waste.

It's time to change that."

All over the world, the waste collection business remains incredibly inefficient.

Whilst handpicking is required for hard to reach places, there are kilometers of beaches and coastline littered with all sorts of waste.

We need the right tool for the right job. With our background in robotics, we plan on testing the limits of existing machinery to then develop the right technology to rid our beautiful beaches of all that pollution.

Let us not waste opportunities

"At the end of the day, there is no such thing as waste. Only wasted opportunities.

Our end goal is to create opportunities to transform how we deal with waste."

Waste is the future.

Now is the time to invest in a circular economy, where all waste is reduced, reused and recycled - in that order.

Our planet has finite resources and we will start to feel the impact of our wasteful, throwaway system very, very soon.

Invest now in creating opportunities for waste to live a second life and to be plugged back into the economy and our lives.

Our goal:

50km² of clean beaches by 2020

1
Raise funds

We're looking to raise enough money to allow us to operate along the west African coastline efficiently and truly change the face of polluted coastlines here.

This will be the groundwork to further develop tourism.

2
Bring the equipment

We will import our equipment, put together our dream team and start testing it on beaches suffering from different levels of pollution.

We will invest in developing our own collection technology.

3
get to work

We aim to cover 50km² within one year.

This will happen through partnerships with hotels, local authorities, property developers or international organisations.

4
re-use & recycle

Once collected, we'll work with local partners to re-use and recycle waste and plastics.

That includes recycling professionals, experts in repurposing and artisans in search of materials.
