Eco-BeG- specific recycling

An example of a successful social enterprise is the first eco-social enterprise in Serbia - Eco BeG.

The company hires women who have more than 45 years, and that as a result of transitional changes, lost their jobs and have limited access to employment. In addition to employment support this vulnerable group, the company is working to promote corporate social responsibility, environmental protection and recycling, as well as the concept of social entrepreneurship.

The company deals with specific recycling using printed PVC bilboards from advertising campaings. Thousands of square meters of this material ends up mostly on landfills, burned or thrown anywhere. The Eco BeG uses this material to sew different objects such as bags, fascicles, cases, wallets which are then sold.
