Trash to treasure: the social enterprises transforming recycling

Green Collect, the Melbourne social enterprise have managed to convince companies to buy back their own rubbish despite the fact of this being an unlikely business model.

Businesses in the city pay Green Collect to take away their hard-to-recycle waste being disposed in the office. Following the collection, socially disadvantaged people employed by Green Collect turn the waste into something useful and re-sells it back to the companies that disposed of it. It’s a win win situation!

Social enterprises such as Green Collect focus on finding solutions to major problems around the world concerning the economy, culture, society and the environment. They aim to be self- sustaining and at least 50% of their profits go straight to these causes.

Here at Wiles Greenworld, the Green Office Suppliers in London, we do not only sell a wide range of Eco Friendly Office Supplies but we also try to facilitate your recycling by offering a value added Free Recycling scheme for our customers around London. This way we can ensure that we are doing the most to help your obtain a Green Office and reduce your Carbon Footprint.
