Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

On Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), Eteicon is making Huge Impact on the following Goals: ¤ Goal No 1: No Poverty; Through the Salaries we pay our workers (Women and Youths), we also empower them Financially hence, keeping them away from negative vices. ¤ Goal No 2: No Hunger. Most importantly when we pay salaries to our workers (Women and Youths), they use it to buy food and feed their Children and Families. ¤ Goal No 6: Clean Water and Sanitation; With many Low income families and Homes using our Low Grade Toilet Roll (Mums Toilet Tissue), Open-End Defecation has greatly reduced in our community. ¤ Goal No 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure. ¤ Goal No 13: Climate Action; through the Recycling and Reconversion of Waste Paper into Low Grade Toilet Rolls, the amount of Greenhouse Gases (Carbon di Oxide, Methane gases etc) released from the Dump sites have been greatly reduced and ¤ Goal No 17: Partnerships for Goals; through the Combined activities of our Teams of Waste Pickers, Topan Advance Agro Paper Mills LTD, Rural Women and Youths in our community. IMPACT: 1). Mums Toilet Rolls (Regular Size and Jumbo Rolls) is sold at $9 and $7 per bag respectively as against $19 and $17 for the premium quality Rolls which are quite expensive for most low income families to buy and use. 2). We will convert 60 Tonnes of Waste Paper into Low grade toilet tissue per annum. 3).200, 000 low income families were served in 2015; 22 Rural Youths were engaged and 10 of which are Women were employed. 4). 20, 000 bags of Mums Toilet Tissue were produced in 2015. 5). Rural Women were empowered through jobs created in Eteicon. 6).Reduction in Greenhouse gas emissions from these dump sites. 7).Waste to Wealth and a Cleaner environment through the Recycling and Reconversion of Waste Paper into Low GradeToilet Tissue.

Sustainability and future plans

We Gather Waste Paper through the help of Waste Pickers at the Dump Sites, Bale, Recycle into Jumbo Reels in Partnership with Topan Advance Agro Paper Mills LTD Onitsha Anambra State which has a larger capacity of Pulping 100,000 Metric Tonnes of Waste Paper Daily and producing Low Grade Jumbo Reels at a very Subsidized rate, We then Convert into different Market size Rolls for use by Low Income families across Nigeria. Having won several awards (National and International), we used our award ceilings to buy our locally fabricated machines and then startup. Eteicon funds comes from earned Income--retaining 55% of profit from each product range of Mums Toilet Tissue sold. It cost us $6 to produce one bag of Mums Regular Size Rolls which we sell at $9 (1,800 Naira) making a profit of $3 per bag; And $5 to produce One bag of Mums Jumbo Rolls which we sell at $7 (1,600 Naira) making a profit of $2 per bag; as against the premium quality Rolls which is sold at $19 and $17 respectively; not affordable for low income families to buy and use. We supply our finished goods (Bags of Mums Toilet Rolls) directly to our Distributors across 15 States in Nigeria Respectively. Both our services and products can be adopted and Implemented anywhere in Nigeria and other Countries in sub-saharan Africa to help recycle waste paper. At our current size, we are seeking for Grants, Competition, Awards and Private Investments to raise our capital (to approximately $250,000) needed for us to fully install a complete line of Waste Paper Recycling /Pulping Machine and other facilities capable of Recycling, Pulping and Reconverting over 80,000 Metric Tonnes/Year of Waste Paper into Toilet Rolls directly in E.T.

July 6, 2016 19:00

Hi Tochukwu, your project appears to be sustainable as the profit element obtained from product sales can be plough back to expand operation in the long run.
However, is it possible for you to match up with your competitors pricing model, without compromising the quality of your low-cost product sold in the market?

can you create or enter new market or existing market with another unique brand to target average income customers, while you still keep the low income customers you are targeting?
these are few market segmentation and product penetration approaches/ strategy that can help your grow your customer base and turnover annually. And it will help adjust your pricing model to get higher profit margin.
i hope this suggestion will be of value to your business mission

Very nice project and I trust this will be a great success in your country and can be adopted by others.
Keep it up.

May 14, 2016 03:13

Thank You Umar..

May 13, 2016 17:21

Wow! I am impressed. Making the best out of waste.

May 13, 2016 13:07

Thank You Mr Christophe, we will always keep working hard to help low income families across Nigeria improve on Sanitation Generally.
On your project on Crop Irrigation System, I have already given my thoughts about it thanks.

May 13, 2016 12:33

Hello Emelone,

I see good health and cleanliness in your work as it increases proper sanitation in the population as well as maintaining the livelihoods among the people. Keep up the good work. I also want to be assisted on my project know as "CROP IRRIGATION SYSTEM" by commenting and polishing it. I wish all the very best in this competition.

Yours,
Christophe

May 12, 2016 16:44

Thanks Rooney, that would be great and the market there would be huge. My team will think it through and also work out the logistics. Thank you very much Sir.

May 12, 2016 15:42

Thanks Emelone for giving me a solid review on ma project. Hope u xpand your spheres of influence even to central african sub region. perfect idea guy. Am waiting to see your mom's toilet tissue from Aba-Yaounde

May 10, 2016 10:24

Thanks Mr Joshua. Aba and Lagos are hugely over populated and that's why we keep experiencing the huge waste deposits in these cities.
And only through Recycling can we convert most of these waste materials into reusable useful products. The most interesting thing is the amount jobs created along each line of Waste Paper recycling process for both Women and Youths.

May 10, 2016 09:28

It really is a great idea. The amount of this waste in Lagos is one of the main reason of pollution and even flooding. Our population is large and the people leave a large amount of waste on the street and am so proud we have someone who can clean this up and create employment for others in return.

May 8, 2016 15:45

Thank you Mr Davies for been inspired through our project.

May 8, 2016 15:23

what a fantastic project i have enjoyed reading and learning from it keep it up for Africa

May 7, 2016 03:59

Nigeria has a population of over 160 Million People and this like you said Mr Francis is true for our huge Market while it also account for the huge waste produced daily~~~(*_*).
In eteicon we gather these Waste paper through the help of Waste Pickers, Bale, supply for recycling and then Convert for use by Low income families. The whole process look quite easy oo but it's really a chain network of coordinated processes fused together and along each chain, there's massive jobs created for women and Youths. We are working each day towards perfection and through the process, discovering and learning new ways of simplifying the whole process. And through the process of learning and discovering, our passion for waste paper recycling and Reconversion keeps growing.
We are always willing to Network especially amongst young entrepreneurs through information sharing and online/ In-factory training.
Thank you very much Mr Francis for your kind and encouraging words. Eteicon wishes you great success ahead sir cheers.

May 6, 2016 15:49

The way you put your idea looks like its not a hard business to do and as long as you have the waste paper then you can employ many. The challenge in Africa and the world over is un-employment especially the youth. If only you can increase the number of employees then you would have made Africa great because this would mean you will increase productivity. Nigeria is a strong market hub due to its population, use this and increase production so that you employ more people.

I would need to learn how you do your thing
Cheers

May 5, 2016 13:52

Thank you very much Sir Jonah. We are not where we to be yet, however, we are not where we started. We are working each day to improve on our mistakes of yesterday. Thank you for your encouraging words; eteicon wishes you success. Have a blessed day Sir cheers.

May 5, 2016 13:15

This is a dynamic project that has gained ground. Thus I don't see an area I can advice you upon..as most likely advises has already been given here. More grease to your elbow.

May 5, 2016 12:28

Thank You Micheal Farrar, we are currently reconstructing our Website (www.eteicon.com) to have an e-commerce section where buyers can place order and buy Mums Toilet Tissue Online; while we supply to them upon confirmation of their cash deposit.
On the other hand, what we do currently is that we have Lead Distributors across 15 states in Nigeria. Each of these our Distributors carries between 800 to 1000 bags of Mums Toilet Tissue Monthly. This is equally creating jobs for Drivers and young boys who off-load this tissue from the truck at their various sales depot.

May 5, 2016 12:19

We are working round the clock to help keep our environment clean through the works of our project in Eteicon. Through Waste Paper Recycling, we are creating jobs for women and Youths. Through the salaries we pay, families can feed. Converting these waste paper into Low Grade Toilet Tissue for use by Low income families, Open-End defecation have greatly reduced in our community and this is a huge plus on Sanitation Generally in our community.
Thank you Vincent Ushaki for your kind words as I also hope to read through your project or Idea soonest as you publish it on this platform cheers.

May 5, 2016 12:08

Thank you very much Mr Opeyemi. I would be very glad to read through your project/ Idea and also share my thoughts about it. Good luck to you sir cheers.

Thank you Charles. There's a saying that 'when you empower a women, you empower the Nation'. Nigeria has a total population of over 160 Million people and of this group Women and Youths make up over 65%. They are the worst hit of the High unemployment rate in Nigeria currently. In our capacity through Eteicon, we are helping to create jobs for this vulnerable group.

April 30, 2016 16:55

Great project! Very helpful to women

April 29, 2016 11:47

Thanks Ade, when we create jobs for more Women and pay them salaries or Wages, they use it to assist the family; feed the younger ones, pay their school fee amongst many others..

April 29, 2016 09:25

That is a very great idea,most especially in the line of women empowerment,this days women can be catered for and they can make them to be recognisable in the society.Love your work man.(you can also review mine and give a comment pls).

April 26, 2016 13:50

Hi
starting your own business is a risky and often stressful endeavor, but the fear of failure can be particularly strong for female entrepreneurs. As studies have shown, women, due to a lifetime of social conditioning, tend to be more risk-averse than men. But the good news is that we can undo all that negative conditioning. So make like Mae West and be “the type of girl who climbs the ladder wrong by wrong.” There’s no shame in that, and you’ll eventually get it right. i appreciative the kind effort you took in empowering women..if all will understand in the act of empowering women i think it will really help..

kudos bro

April 26, 2016 13:26

creating a lucrative and free job environment for the youth of Africa and Nigeria is best ever initiative one can embark on and that's exactly what you are doing..with your project it a well refined project which will create about 1000's of job for the youth in the factory and workers and on the market as sellers which will create enough revenue and reduce unemployment..keep it up

i will love to partner you ..

April 26, 2016 08:28

Thanks Frei, we only specializes in the Production of Low Grade Toilet Tissue for low income families for now but we hope to start producing Serviette later this year and that will also mean that we will employ more Women and Youths for that section too.

April 26, 2016 08:19

Congratulations on your work, impressive and inspiring. As a part of the youth sector, its very nice seeing these kinds of initiatives. Do you also produce other products aside from paper? Thanks for the review too!

Tochukwu,

I just submitted my idea for 2nd round approval so that I can publish to the rest of the group.

April 16, 2016 18:28

Thank you Mona. We are currently working on our expansion plan. Have you re-uploaded you project??.

April 16, 2016 17:53

Wonderful job! You are doing some awesome work and have gained a lot of traction. One thing to consider is an evaluation plan. This will be key when seeking funding from large donors or even partnerships with international development organizations. I wish you and your company nothing but the best.

April 16, 2016 15:27

The beauty of our work is the amount of Direct jobs that we have created for Youths in our community. Yes, it is a dirty job from the source but the finishing and end product is the cleanest, soft and very hygienic product (Mums Toilet Tissue ) that serves humanity.

April 16, 2016 15:12

Thank you Benedict, feel free to contact me on + 234 703 248 7325 ( Call, SMS or WhatsApp ) or through my Facebook page www.facebook.com/emelone tochukwu eddy.

April 16, 2016 15:08

Thank you prince maxwel.

April 16, 2016 10:30

Hello. Even if we don't operate in the same fields, i find that our ideas have the same goal: transforming unused materials in valuable object. Please check my idea and tell me what you think about.
Hope you will reach your objectives and find success in your business.

April 16, 2016 00:58

Kudos!

April 16, 2016 00:25

Hi Tochukwu , was very nice reading through your works and achievements . So much I can learn from you .Would it be okay if I could reach you personally so you can teach me some bits about entrepreneurship ,what you have learnt and about your journey . Will hope this platform can facilitate such conversations in the future . or perhaps Its because i haven't figured it all out yet .

April 13, 2016 08:44

Thank you Isaacs and we hope to also partner with other Young Entrepreneurs in other African countries to see how we can start our company in their country to also service their community and neighbours too.
Thanks to Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition for this platform.

April 13, 2016 03:58

Tochukwu, I am thrill by the fact that you could see cash from waste. Ideas and projects of this kind always use a stone to kill 2 birds. And your raw material too is easy to come by indicating partly the sustainability of your business. Congratulations brother.

April 12, 2016 18:05

Well guess I am thinking of the future just like you.When I stated color it was not for toilet tissue I was referring to napkins different coloured napkins.I made a mistake with my link UrClickcast https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/4/2637/ .Please take the time to check it out if you have not already.

April 12, 2016 17:52

Hahahahahaha hahahahahaha Jayson Sharpe, you just said our next line up plans.
We also working towards installing a Serviette line using a locally fabricated machine. The installation is about 55% complete.
For medicated wipe, we can only achieve that using a foreign machine that has in it installed, all the features we need. And guess what, it Sells like Wildfire in the Nigerian Market because, Nigeria has a population of over 120 Million people and record has it that over 100 Million people use Toilet Tissue and Wipes daily. Even for Low income families that use 'Mums Toilet Tissue' we are struggling to meet up with the demands from our distributors daily.
Coloured Toilet Tissue are not really a fancy of many Nigerian Homes, Offices, Schools, Hotels, Hospitals. .etc.
Thank you very much sir for your comment and suggestions too cheers.

April 12, 2016 17:40

Thank you Regina. ., we signed a contract with the Federal government of Nigeria through the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to train Nigerian Graduates (Women and Youths) on Skills and Entrepreneurship with emphasis on Waste to Wealth project (Waste Paper Recycling and Toilet Tissue production at the NYSC orientation camp in Obubra Cross - River State Nigeria).
On have another branch of our company in another state, we have really considered that but it would be very better for us to expand what we are currently doing into more larger scale here in Aba, Abia State and then have more sales depots across the 36 states in Nigeria. This will create an additional 60 Job opportunities for youths in our community to add to the 22 Members of staff we already have at the moment.
Thanks dear Regine for your comment and suggestions.

April 12, 2016 02:33

I can see that you are truly an entrepreneur by 1.investing in a necessity that people use everyday and 2.Using such a medium to get your partners businesses out, that is a brilliant stratergy.I do not know your product line up specifically but I can tell you maybe you can look at other paper products such as napkins in various colors,a high strength paper towel and medicated wipes, this will increase your line up and open up your markets.It is a great idea and using renewable sources you are making the world a better place.Continue doing the great work and I wish you further success.Please take the time to check out my idea UrClickcast https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/4/2637/ .Take care.

April 11, 2016 06:43

This is a really great project sir! I admire your passion in helping out your countrymen. :) I would suggest as well that you already expand in other parts of yout country to provide more jobs for the youth. Also, it would be nice to hold trainings and seminars for ordinary citizens in terms of sanitation.

I'd like to learn from you so I hope you could also comment on my start-up called The Bright Box. It's still for planning so I'm still getting various ideas to improve it. You may check it in my profile. :)

April 11, 2016 06:03
