Gjenge is a social enterprise whose team of vibrant human beings aims to tackle the looming plastic waste problem by recycling and upcycling plastic into construction material. As a social enterprise, they address the prevalent crisis of improper waste management by developing a recycling/upcycling ecosystem to foster an eco-friendly lifestyle. For the collection of waste plastics, Gjenge runs a mobile application linking households to a business platform whereby they buy waste plastics from households (who are the largest contributors of waste plastics, by almost 61%). When picking up the waste, they weigh it and through Gjenge’s application, their customers get credit for the waste through an alternative payment system.
