Exchange of material for irrigation systems

Every DROP counts Each IDEA helps

Its based on the exchange of materials through a platform, that the agricultural industry communicates with the small farmer.

Use Case

It is a virtual initiative, inviting the agricultural industry to join and communicate, so that small farmers can make use of their plastic waste for new infrastructures that help reduce the use of water and can maintain their crops.

Potential

Recycling in agriculture is little used, start to reuse those materials that still serve to plow up infrastructures that help to capture water or improve the efficiency in its use, help reduce pollution and reduce the costs of the farmer with few resources

Business Case

It is based on the exchange, the industry can give at lower cost their plastic waste, those that can be used and buy the small farmer

Objectives:

  1. Communicate the agricultural industry with the small farmer through a platform
  2. Recycling plastic waste generated by the agricultural industry
  3. Build infrastructures with recycled material that reduces the use of water for small farmers

Our Mission

As a team we want to adapt to the needs of farmers, work for their well-being to meet their expectations, adding value to each job carried out. Contribute to the development and realization of your goals.

Our Background

As a team we are participating because we have seen the need that people suffer with respect to water, and we want to help change that reality, we have also seen how plastic waste in good condition ends up contaminated our community, we want to teach people who still have value both economically for the industry that discards it, as for the poor farmer who can not buy it at a high price. We only want to communicate so that people can help each other.
