Executive Summary

Our company ETC, aims to create value out of garbage, an item otherwise deemed worthless. Our name stands for environment, technology, and community and represents our core values of the company. Our number one priority is to empower the people in the two communities in Iloilo to restore their environment. Garbage is a tremendous problem in the communities and provides significant hurdles for the residents, some of them being odour, disease, and pests. We provide free odourless garbage bins for the residents of the communities to eliminate smell in their homes and minimize contact with the garbage. In addition to this, we provide a garbage disposal facility with a buyback program that is operated by members of the community, not only creating a solution for garbage disposal, but also generating income for the residents. Through the use of Precious Plastic Machines technology, we are able to create plastic pellets out of the garbage with minimal cost and training. These pellets will be sold to partner companies who in turn will use the pellets to create products that are not only eco-friendly, but also support the economy of a developing community. Finally, we will use regular town hall meetings, along with employing local residents at our facility to create a strong sense of community involvement, and brand loyalty for members of the waste program to e encourage continuous engagement. Moreover, in acknowledging the importance of community in Iloilo, we also aim to connect the communities with those around the world by providing the opportunity to support them by purchasing products made with our plastic pellets. In doing this, we are creating a global community in which individuals are able to work together to develop communities who need the most help.
