    What We Do 

    GPR under GPI collects and buys recyclable plastic waste at the household and business establishment level using community cooperation for cleaner environment , dump site and event centres.

    At collection, each household’s materials are weighed and this weight is then entered into our database, Households are then rewarded with redeemable points based on the volume and quality of recyclables they give.

     As households accumulate points over time, they can redeem their points for specific rewards like food items and cash based on the quantity and type of materials they recycle with us.

    Our Mission

    §  At least 267 different species of marine life are adversely affected by plastic pollution

    §  225 million tons of non-biodegradable plastics are produced annually worldwide that destroy our environment continuously

    §  Single use plastic bag has an average life span of 12 minutes, and destructive span of about 1,000 year


    It is a common sight to see our streets, drainage, roadsides and even dumpsites packed with recyclable packaging materials which are carelessly disposed of by users. This practice often poses environmental hazards to communities as they experience flood due to the blockage of water drainage by most of these recyclables which has become the fastest growing packaging option in the beverage and food industry. Ondo State (our pilot location) has an estimated population of 3.5 million people and daily generates an average of 2,000 metric tonnes of waste of which 800 metric tonnes are currently recycled. Recyclables form the bulk of identifiable items at refuse points in Nigeria. Often times, the drainage channels in the metropolis cities are blocked by these recyclable items and the resultant effect during the rainy season is flood and breeding ground for harmful organisms.
