The Lup Vision
We will drive a circular economy in Latin America by finding profitable and sustainable uses for trash, thereby promoting social entrepreneurship and benefiting local communities.
What we do
We are embracing the principles of a circular economy through the development of locally focused recycling-based manufacturing plants. Glass waste will be processed into low carbon product with a focus on silicon fertilizers.
By managing glass waste locally, it allows reliable economic opportunities for waste collectors, diverts valuable resources from landfill, contributes to the reduction of GHG emissions associated with nitrogen-based fertilizers and improves soil quality and crop yield.
Lup was founded by Bénédicte Faure and Caitlin Oliver, who envisioned a company that would be both profit and purpose driven.
