About the Company
Who We Are
“Create a new game of recycling in emerging markets by changing the perception of waste”
When you look at a waste picker, what do you see? What do you feel? What do you think? Do you smile and thank them for clearing the man-made mess on the streets and in our homes? Do you recognise their occupation as a noble venture that saves us from potential toxicity? Could they be just like you? With hopes, dreams and demanding waste collection schedules? At Mr. Green Africa (MGA) , we acknowledge their value.
That being said, we have designed a human-centred business model that illustrates shared value at its best. Mr. Green Africa incentivises marginalised waste pickers and base of the pyramid stakeholders by offering premium prices and added benefits. This restores their dignity and alleviates poverty while at the same time providing a continuous supply of valuable recyclables to Mr. Green Africa.
Mr. Green Africa then processes the recyclable material into valuable raw material and feeds it back into plastic manufacturers’ supply chain to enable them to achieve circular economy goals, and benefit from raw material cost savings while simultaneously creating a positive environmental impact.For this endeavour and journey ahead, we are looking for passionate people with a genuine heart, who also believe in doing well by doing good and want to put their skills in a more purposeful working life.
