About Greenback Recycling Technologies
Greenback is on an exciting journey to address one of the world's biggest social and environmental problems – that of plastic waste. Less than 10% of the world's plastic packaging is recycled today. As well as being a tragic waste of resources, the environmental and human consequences of this waste are highly noticeable.
Greenback is creating a solution for post-consumer waste plastic which supports the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. We are implementing an efficient, scalable and distributed process that offers consumers a better product while providing full transparency and traceability. We support local economies to help them extract untapped value from waste. In developing countries, we create fairly-rewarded, safe jobs and new income streams for thousands of waste pickers.
We are building a decentralised network of recycling plants near the sources of plastic waste, which we buy from local collectors. We use the infrastructure already in place and combine it with our advanced technologies to provide feedstock for the production of food-grade packaging at scale. To evidence the recycled content in the packaging, we use our ecoVeritas certification system, based on blockchain and AI technologies, giving brand owners and consumers confidence from shelf to shelf.
We believe that we are building something pretty unique that will be a key component of the solution to this global problem. To find out more, please visit our website: https://www.greenback.earth/.
