Plastics are often portrayed as a culprit of environmental degradation. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Ecopost is a social enterprise that addresses the challenges of urban waste management (plastic pollution), chronic youth unemployment, deforestation and climate change.
We recycle waste plastic and agricultural waste to manufacture eco-friendly plastic lumber profiles with application in numerous industries from fencing to road signage to outdoor furniture.
We are committed to environmental excellence that is integrated with a business‐wide approach to sustainability.
We employ an existing technology, local labour and resources to produce an innovative product and help solve pressing socioeconomic and environmental challenges.
