Like many people, we often look at our kitchen garbage cans in shame, wondering where on earth all the garbage is going to go! A groundbreaking startup in Europe called Seenons just got our attention on the topic, and they are aiming high for a waste-free future. Their plan? It’s rooted in the circular economy.
Seenons took on the waste issue with technology and logistics, creating a platform that connects every player in the waste cycle. From waste separation to trash transportation (aka logistics), to processors and producers that recycle trash into new materials, these folks have figured out how to tie everyone together and create a ‘matchmaking’ scenario between garbage and production of goods.
From Trash to Treasure
The beauty of Seenons’ platform is that it makes for endless possibilities for waste transformation. Imagine coffee residues being repurposed into luxury soap or used as a raw material for urban gardening. Or construction scraps that can be used for flooring tiles. It’s all about matchmaking waste to a suitable processor, and we think it’s beautiful.
Easy-Peasy Waste Management
Thanks to Seenons’ user-friendly website and app, any business can post for their waste to be picked up for processing with just a few clicks. Users can then track their waste and watch where it goes, ensuring that their ‘match’ is following through on their product production via a personalized dashboard.
Seenons is European, but they just landed a big round of funding, and we’re hoping that their model sparks a movement–maybe even in the U.S. They are part of a growing group of innovators focused on this increasingly important issue, reminding us that a together, we can turn waste into wonderful new opportunities.
