Alexis Wellman - The Big Scoop SA
The Big Scoop is South Africa's first sensible and responsible approach to pet waste collection and disposal
The Big Scoop is South Africa's first sensible and responsible approach to pet waste collection and disposal started in 2019. We are on a mission to create a circular economy and keep single-use products out of our landfills. Unfortunately, with the current state of our landfills, not even a banana peel will decompose. That is why we are steering away from single-use products (even earth-friendly alternatives) and providing responsible South Africans with reusable products that close the waste cycle loop. We are a mother-daughter duo passionate about education citizens, improving the health of pets, humans and the planet and empowering the local economy. We are solution providers, empowerment creators, and environmental warriors. The ultimate goal is to create a circular economy where nothing is wasted.
We have 4 parts of our vision and implementation:
- Our re-usable and organic products (All our material and ingredients are locally sourced and manufactured #supportlocal.
- Our re-usable material is also made from fibres that ensure ease of cleaning and durability)
- Our collection service which collects pet waste from residential homes and estates (Currently we are operating in Somerset West but will expand as awareness grows)
- Our community involvement projects which aim to make public spaces, like beaches and park, completely plastic-free
Using in-vessel composters to turn dog waste into fertilizer to lessen the amount of organic matter that is wasted
We are passionate about offering a sustainable alternative to a very complex issue. Thank you for your time! http://bigscoop.co.za/
