What We Believe

Waste Is An Opportunity

The best natural resource is the one that has already been extracted. Our work begins where others consumption ends, where energy would be otherwise lost to landfills or abandoned.

Innovation is Imperative

We can and will cultivate a healthier, more sustainable Alabama by disrupting outdated processes of waste management and promote sustainable business practices.

Together, People Are Stronger

Lasting, collaborative partnerships are key to creating environments where individuals, organizations and communities flourish.

Knowledge Is Power

Access to information is essential for driving change. We are committed to open-source distribution of knowledge.

In Alabama

Our state is full of natural beauty, biodiversity, proud citizens, and continuous growth.  We know it’s potential and want to see it flourish to be the best version of itself.
