Problem Addressed

Revolutionising the construction and DIY sector and tackling an industry that is the largest contributor to waste globally. Within the UK alone, Enviromate estimates that it equates to 32% of all landfill waste using over 420 million tonnes of material per year generating 120 million tonnes of waste over half of which is reusable. It is estimated that 13% of that material ends up within the waste stream without ever being used, with a value of over £1.5 billion (source: Business Insider)
