This Chilean social enterprise is dedicated to lowering the cost of food and other essential items for low-income families in Chile.
Algramo works directly with manufacturers to sell products in reusable containers, often in bulk, which the company estimates can save up to 50% on consumer costs. In cities where recycling facilities are rare, relying on recycling to reduce plastic waste is unrealistic. This B Corp hopes to foster a reuse and recycling culture, in order to make a dent in the use of single-use plastics. An average Chilean family using Algramo’s products has the potential to avert around two kilograms of plastic waste per month.
