About Project

Problema: ¿Qué problema está tratando de abordar este proyecto?

Bolivia has a lot of tires in the garbage and in the streets. These tires are a product that need about 10.000 year to be degraded and spreads diseases. The government, the private sector and population don´t know what to do with this problem. Therefore, the population has decided to burn these tires, but didn’t know that the produced gas is dangerous for the health and the planet.

Solución: cuál es la solución propuesta? Por favor sé específico!

As a consequence, Bolivia needs a plan to reuse these tires. Thus, Mamut decided to use the rubber of recycled tires to do absorber tiles and draining pavements to give safety ecologic park to Bolivian Children. For each 100 m2 we recover of the garbage about 200 tires.This project, not only gives a reuse a pollutant product, and not only improves the quality of Bolivian´s life. But also, develop the art of recycling and show to the children and society, how recycling products can improve their lives. Hence, Mamut develops a convention with the Cochabamba Government to do the first Eko Safety Park in Bolivia that will be finished in December 2015.

This has a huge environmental impact in the Country and in the future will allow that decrease disease like malaria and decreases the number of tires in the garbage and the streets.

We think that Mamut is an escalating company. For that reason we are interested in the next 3 years develop EKO SAFETY PARKS in all cities in Bolivia. But we are interested in help to other people of different cities to create their own Mamuts. On this hand we are developing an Industrial Franchisee that permits that other people replicated this green Enterprise in his own regions and has the same impact to their own Countries.In fact, we are contacted with young people that want to replicate this idea in Peru, Cost Rica and Senegal.Like Mamut, We are developing other products with recicled.
