Performing a vital social and environmental role.

By providing opportunities for bottle collectors, Extrupet has created an ever-growing cycle that not only contributes meaningfully to solving the problem of post-consumer PET waste in the environment, but also creates much needed employment. Extrupet helps to alleviate poverty by creating opportunities for thousands of mini-entrepreneurs, many of whom have gone on to build their own teams and employ many others to assist them.

The hundreds of collectors that scour the streets and public spaces, collecting discarded PET waste and greening our environment, do so thanks to a continuous demand for the product and support by Extrupet. By buying bottles from a thriving community of collectors, Extrupet is indirectly providing a valuable source of income for thousands on the poverty line
