Belle Verte Ltée
Combining waste collection, entrepreneurship and environmental awareness raising through upcycling
Beach clean-up services for local guesthouses, teambuilding clean-up events for corporations, and waste pickup services for households and SMEs provide Belle Verte Ltée with a regular flow of waste products. The waste is then separated and sold to recyclers or upcycled into creative products during educational workshops. Community members are trained to become “green ambassadors”, that is, micro-entrepreneurs who collect waste that they supply to Belle Verte on a regular basis.
Belle Verte Ltée manages waste treatment services, project development, and sales and partnerships with local institutions and businesses.
Baz’Récup Ltée manages the workshops and the production line of upcycling products.
Blue Compass Ltd designs and delivers educational workshops and training for employees and assists with product development.
Plankton Recycling Co-operative Society Ltd is planning the operations of a glass recycling facility at the proposed Baz’Récup centre.
The 2016 SAG-SEED Awards are supported by the SWITCH-Africa Green project, which is implemented by UNEP with the assistance of the European Union.
