ChopValue: Transforming Waste into Resources, One Chopstick at a Time
In the heart of Bali, an innovative concept is taking root, revolutionizing our approach to waste and sustainability. ChopValue, the world’s pioneering circular economy company, is crafting high-performance products from an unexpected source – recycled chopsticks. Since 2016, ChopValue’s “Urban Harvesting” approach has diverted over 100 million chopsticks from landfills globally, transforming them into exquisite and sustainable additions to homes and offices.
Recognized as a Top 5% Certified B-Corporation, this visionary company is at the forefront of driving change in the projected $4.5 trillion circular economy anticipated by the World Economic Forum for 2030.
The visionary behind introducing ChopValue to Bali is none other than Orin Hardy, Director of ChopValue Indonesia. Hardy, renowned for his family’s global dedication to bamboo design and sustainability, identified an opportunity to tackle Indonesia’s waste crisis. The recently inaugurated Bali Microfactory is a significant addition to the family’s network of environmentally conscious enterprises, which includes the Green School Bali, the Green Village Bali, IBUKU, Bamboo U, Bambu Indah, and Bamboo Pure.
Bali, facing a 'Garbage Emergency,' requires innovative solutions.
LOCAL EFFORT FOR GLOBAL IMPACT
Bali, facing a “Garbage Emergency,” requires innovative solutions. The ChopValue Bali Flagship Microfactory is dedicated to tackling the estimated 1 billion discarded chopsticks annually in Indonesia. The local team has already collected an impressive 1.2 million chopsticks from 169 community partners in Bali alone. This microfactory is not just a facility; it’s a force for positive change, promoting a thriving creative economy where every product leaves a sustainable impact.
INVITING STAKEHOLDER TO REDEFINE “WASTE”
ChopValue invites local stakeholders to collaborate in reshaping the term “waste.” By transforming discarded chopsticks into market-ready products through a distributed manufacturing model, the company aims to create a circular industry with a global impact. Waste, especially when made of valuable materials like bamboo, becomes an opportunity for sustainability rather than an environmental burden.
PIONEERING SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION ACROSS THE ARCHIPELAGO
With plans to establish 25 Microfactory locations across the country, ChopValue Indonesia’s Flagship Microfactory in Bali marks a pivotal moment in their mission. In the world of sustainable practices, ChopValue emerges not only as a pioneer but as an embodiment of a circular economy’s transformative power. As they actively support Indonesia’s journey towards sustainability, ChopValue sets an inspiring example of how a small but efficient facility can yield tangible results, leaving a lasting impact on the environment and local communities.
