More information on Concept loop...
Concept Loop (Pvt) Ltd is a social enterprise focusing on helping businesses and individuals achieve a circular economy in plastics. We are focused on partnering with the existing eco system of kabaris and enhancing corporate partnerships to redirect plastic waste intended for the oceans and landfills. The waste plastics are processed and converted into lifestyle products and affordable, carbon neutral building materials making. Currently in Pakistan, plastic accounts for 18% of its total waste and only a small part of it is recycled into low value products with high levels of contamination during the process. We aim to move the narrative of recycled plastic from a low quality product to a hi value products of choice in both lifestyle and building material segments.
