What Drives Us

Mission & vision

Our mission is to link surplus with needs.  We develop and implement large scale recycled material programs and promote naturally abundant renewable resources. Locally, we run our planet-friendly Eco-Industrial Hub with Flagship Model Factory, and our showcase Eco-Home with Urban Edible Garden. With these sites and our global satellite partners, we provide inspirational, educational and optimistic exhibits that celebrate ecology (the study of life in environments).

We envision humanity harmonizing with Earth. 

Mother Nature is a catalyst and always in balance
Did you know?

LINKING surplus with needs also diverts useful items and materials from the waste stream, plus creates jobs in logistics & repairs.

You shampoo because HAIR collects oil.  Help us recycle hair, fur, and fleece clippings which we felt into oil spill mats.

Adding COMPOST to grazed rangelands replenishes soil and boosts photosynthesis, pulling more carbon out of the air.


Our working model factory, showcase eco-home, and edible urban garden, all promote convenient, climate-friendly choices for the general public. We provide green career initiatives in recycling, reuse, and renewables.  In order to support practical opportunities for implementation, we invite sectors to consolidate information on environmental challenges and successes. Together with our many partners, we orchestrate small and large-scale projects through our immersive physical spaces and online platform.
