Technology for Trading Plastics to Protect the Planet

THE IDEA

  • Bridging the gap between plastic scrap buyers and sellers

WHY IT MATTERS

  • More than 90% of the plastic products are not recycled, and almost 75% end up in landfills.
  • It takes more than 400 years for most plastics to decompose completely.
  • If current trends continue, by 2050 there will be 12 billion tons of plastic in landfills. That amount is approximately 35,000 times the weight Empire State Building.

WHATS NEXT

Silicon Valley startup, Scrapo Inc, is doing their part to reduce plastic waste in landfills by making it easier for buyers and sellers of recyclable plastic scraps to search, negotiate and close deals.

The Scrapo mobile app allows sellers to list their materials in seconds and receive bids from interested buyers all over the world. No more checking emails or placing pricey international calls. Trading made simple! 

To ensure trust and security Scrapo also offers an on-demand service called ScrapoSure. Under this service, a team member will personally visit the seller’s site, verify their identity, inspect materials, supervise the loading process and assist with logistics. 

“Even if our efforts lead to a single percentage increase in the amount of plastics recycled or reused globally, we would be happy that we contributed towards making the world a better place” says Founder and CEO, Rashad Abbasov- and we agree. Every little bit counts!
