This company is founded by young enthusiastic people, who believe that large companies (which invest a significant amount of money in publicity) are also socially responsible regarding their waste materials. The municipality of Quito has no restrictions about waste management for companies (besides chemicals). For this reason, this company would like to give companies an alternative which is rewarded with positive publicity. They are collaborating with various large marketing companies as well as large companies in Ecuador which use a lot of publicity material. They create objects and accessories that can be sold and hence given a second life out of waste materials. Those materials can vary from publicity banners, PET bottles, car and bicycle tyres, etc.
