This valorization helps to get rid of bulky waste, while promoting the use of performing natural products to upgrade the urban and domestic environenment, and offering job opportunities to low qualified people.
The Coco Verde Project opens a cycle of waste valorization to natural technical products, offering na opportunity of social promotion and helping to beautify our environement.

More than 50 items are currently offered such as pots , flower boxes, baskets, sheets, stakes, substrates, decorating articles, acoustic panels, "floral walls" ... This is a pionnering activity, for horticulture, landscaping and domestic use.
