Known as Cairo Garbage City and is the world’s largest garbage village that
is home to over 60,000 Zaballeen – garbage-collectors. They are
entrepreneurial garbage workers who have achieved the most efficient
waste disposal system worldwide, recycling over 80% of their daily
collected garbage which accounts to 3000 – 4000 tons daily, while
developed cities and multinational waste disposal corporations recycle only
20 – 30 percent of what they collect, leaving the rest to rot in giant landfills.
Up-fuse is proud to be taking part in reducing co2 emissions. By recycling plastic bags, we prevent them from getting dumped in a landfill or even burned along with other trash.Up-fuse’s entire Co2 emission is 53,649g per week.
During our production, we must use water to clean the plastic bags before transforming them into Up-fuse products. This process consumes approximately 1.4 liter/ bag
As we are trying to become the most sustainable, we are now developing a new cleaning technique that reduces the amount of water used. This technique aims to use the water as a final process, instead of making it the main source of cleansing.
It’s important to note that Up-fuse does not use any harmful chemicals inside their productions.
Our brands slogan is “nothing is ever wasted” and we stand by it. Every piece of plastic is used in production, we do not throw away any piece of fabric.
We are careful about the sustainability of our packaging as well, so we’ve decided to we use 100% recyclable paper bags to pack our products.
