Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
Brazil produces around 250 tons of garbage and of this total, 90,000 tonnes correspond to household waste. In the city of São Paulo are collected daily, about 18,000 tons of municipal solid of which 80% or 12,000 tons, are household waste. The city aims to collect and recycle less than 2% of the waste.
In São Paulo, there are 28,000 residential buildings and only 1,400 have recycling programs.
Therefore, we arrive at a conclusion that the market for the expansion of Change Institute is growing with great potential.
