about us

 
Passionate about changing the future of plastic recycling in emerging markets

Mr. Green Africa, the first recycling company to be a Certified B Corporation on the African continent, leverages business as a force for good to realize sustainable, long-term social, environmental and economic impact through the collection, conversion and selling of post consumer plastic waste.

 

Our technology driven plastics collection model enables waste collection at the source, integrating informal waste workers, micro-entrepreneurs and consumers into our formal value chain, increasing the amount of post-consumer plastic waste Mr. Green Africa collects and providing stakeholders the chance to earn a fair, predictable and transparent income and benefits.

 

Our world class processing equipment, housed at our factory in Nairobi, allows Mr. Green Africa to convert locally collected plastic waste into high-quality PCR (Post Consumer Recyclates) and sell it as a substitute imported virgin plastics at competitive rates. To close the loop, Mr. Green Africa works closely with brand owners and third party plastics manufactures to develop and execute three-way off take agreements for high quality PCR, helping FMCGs and others realize their sustainable packaging goals by accessing ethically sourced, locally produced PCR.
