Vancouver based company ChopValue creates high performance circular economy designs made entirely from recycled chopsticks. The urban harvested material is transformed through a carbon neutral micro-manufacturing model and reintroduced into society as durable engineered products. ChopValue intends to leave a climate positive footprint throughout their entire process. ChopValue launched its turnkey Microfactory franchise concept for expansion on a global scale. With Microfactories operating in multiple cities, ChopValue can truly be local for a more efficient process while being a carbon negative company.
