Green Phenix is a social enterprise that is creating a circular inclusive economy in the Caribbean. We promote waste reduction and we actively collect, sort, clean, shred & recycle plastic waste into new meaningful, long-lasting products. We currently have 12 local participants and a steady group of volunteers. Our goal is to ensure that everybody can play a part in ensuring in 2050 we can still use the ocean as we do today. We ensure valuable resources do not go to waste.
The way we use plastic is causing huge global problems. We aim to prevent the prediction that "in 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish". We believe a circular economy, where waste simply does not exist is the solution.
We start in the beautiful island of Curacao. We'll use an holistic approach and we will prove the concept for Curacao and from there we will scale to the Caribbean. We work with extrusion, injection, filament extrusion and 3D printing.
This project is the start of a necessary system shift that we need in the world. The most talented and passionate people will be involved, paving the way for others to start local recycling initiatives and the circular economy is boosted. Plastic free oceans is the ultimate goal!
