Awarded Hazelview Project Accelerator

November

Enviroot was 1 of 5 projects chosen for this accelerator!

Enviroot repurposes orange peel waste into soft boards and dart boards. By using a material that would otherwise go to waste, Enviroot reduces landfill waste and supports the circular economy. The soft board they produce resembles cork board -- a commonly used material in building insulation and wall panels. The new soft board material could potentially be used as a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative in building construction, particularly by Hazelview Properties in our efforts to make our buildings more sustainable. Enviroot also educates the community and local businesses about the importance of reducing waste and the need for environmental sustainability.
