Description of Social Entrepreneurship

The dynamic consists of receiving recycling in exchange for the market. We are an organization that works hand in hand with the social pastoral of the bread and life house. Recycling is received and then, with technology, transform it and sell it as raw material to the different industries and with what has been received, stock up the market for the benefit of the recycling community.

What led you to create your Social Entrepreneurship?

The poverty of the elderly. Rid the environment of pollution and to generate employment and provide a livelihood for the household economy.

How does your Social Entrepreneurship impact your community?

At the present time we process more than 10 tons per month or solid waste that does not go to the landfill and that processed are integrated back into the circular economy ridding the environment of pollutants and supporting more than 115 recyclers and their family environment.

What do you dream of happening with your Social Entrepreneurship?

That this project can be multiplied in the different Colombian municipalities and departments and why not transcend internationally. Achieve equipment to generate plastic wood and thus prevent the cutting and burning of our forests and be led by that vulnerable population.
