Our approach to sustainable projects

Sustainable projects at PraxEco adapt together like a web between diverse industries to ensure high efficiency and low cost. Our projects fall into three main categories:

  • Eliminate waste: Waste is not waste until it’s wasted. Waste does not exist in nature; the output of one system is the input of another. Following that concept, we are building open source machines that recycle plastic, compost food scraps, and turn any other form of “waste” to heat, compost, and stored methane gas that can be used as an energy source. In the future, we plan to start projects to recycle and reuse metal and concrete.

  • Optimize consumption: The biggest and most important consumption need is, with no doubt, food. We like to imagine a future where fresh, local, biodynamic, high-quality organic produce is available, in abundance, for whoever needs it. For that, we chose to start our journey towards self-sustainable consumption with Project A: Agriculture. From plastic recycled window pots, to autonomous zero-waste closet gardens, to community greenhouses Using as much growing area as possible to grow a community’s local production of food, fibers (clothes), medicine, tools…

  • Collective-Self-Empowerment: This category focuses on creating activities and workshops that brings back sustainable knowledge (and power). This allows individuals to learn, teach, reflect, practice and work independently and together. Collective-Self-Empowerment series are aimed to empower self-reflection, communal engagement and collaborative entrepreneurship.

Research Strategy

The scope of our research extends to twelve (12) diverse fields of interest. Our research strategy is to address issues in each of the 12 fields starting by developing solutions that apply to the SELF scale and slowly scaling up to home, network, bioregion and beyond. Partners may choose to focus on one industry or participate in several of them.

Within our web of interconnected projects, we are live in three projects: Precious Plastic Montreal, Conext Innovation, Influence Credits (Open Collaboration Program), Food Vision 2050, Permabond, and PraxEco App. Precious Plastic Montreal aims to revolutionize recycling in Montreal through distributed responsibility through a network of recycling nodes. Conext Innovation is a recycling workshop partner for building custom products made of recycled plastic. The Influence Credits is PraxEco proposed current-see for highly ethical value exchange. It is a permaculture-inspired approach of the collaborative peer to peer economy. PraxEco App is being built to facilitate the connection, communication, participation, coordination, and comprehension of the new economy by users worldwide. Food Vision 2050 is an attempt to make healthy organic food abundant and FREE for greater Montreal by 2050. Permabond is our Permaculture-specialized partner for everything related to organic life amplification: water collection and filtration, carbon sequestration, soil regeneration, and food production.
