Ecoinclusion Foundation

We are change

We are a foundation created in the city of Alta Gracia, Córdoba, Argentina. Our main purpose: improving the economic and social conditions of the most vulnerable sectors of society, eliminating the contamination of plastic waste by transforming them into constructive solutions.

WORK MODEL

We developed a triple impact proposal for the planet and for society, which consists of the following points:

1. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

We propose a concrete solution to pollution by plastic waste, and reduce the environmental footprint. We also work on environmental awareness, informing, sensitizing and educating all the actors that are linked to Eco-inclusive causes in the construction of a more sustainable world, facilitating practices to incorporate into everyday life.

2. ECONOMIC IMPACT

We add value to a part of the plastic waste transforming them into building materials (eco-bricks) and by collaborating in the economic development of a community in a vulnerability situation, we add up with the economic development of the country. Within the Eco-Network system, urban recyclers, cooperatives and others participate. Having a fixed collection allows them to secure a monthly income in their pocket, and they maintain decent working conditions.

3. SOCIAL IMPACT

The eco-bricks that we generate are destined exclusively to constructions in vulnerable areas, constructions that have a visible impact (community centers, libraries, clubs, etc.) by providing new tools for the inhabitants. This translate into accessibility to newly earned citizen rights. We also contribute to the development of the community through training on new technologies and different training instances in order to foster opportunities to improve their living conditions.

Generate a triple positive impact, through “INNOVATIVE CONSTRUCTION SOLUTIONS” that have as origin the RECYCLING of plastic waste and as a final destination the EMPOWERMENT of the SECTORS IN VULNERABILITY SITUATION of the society. We want to be an organization – replicable in nature – that provides social and ecological technology for sustainable inclusion.

“TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD”, becoming a leading NGO in Latin America, recognized for the innovation and scalability of its procedures and its management model, capable of executing actions with social, environmental and economic impact. We yearn to be a vehicle for the promotion of rights and to be noticed by helping build an increasingly inclusive and opportunity-generating society.

SOLIDARITY: is the central value that mobilizes the entire organization and its projects.
INNOVATION: not only in our product line. We seek to innovate the management model to guarantee the implementation of our projects.
INDEPENDENCE: guarantees us freedom of action. We do not depend on governments to finance our production or the implementation of the Projects.
TRANSPARENCY: we are an “open organization”. With all processes managed for the community and with a formal system of accountability.
