Sustainability and future plans

Competitive Advantage: 1. Advanced technology: Strength: Tight and reinforced parallel polymer lattice. A globally accepted quality that's lacking in our competitions products. Thickness: 0.8 1.2 mm thicker than the conventional household items, this giving it that firm feel and appeal. Pavement block: This is a first in the industry. Interlocking blocks make with plastic pallets, that's three times stronger and durable compared to that of the competition. Antifungal, fire resistant and non slippery surface for firmer grip. 2. Service delivery: Prompt delivery of orders with both online and offline presence. This is largely attributed to our close proximity to the market. 3. Price suitability: Lower pricing to appeal to our targeted customers and also penetrate deep into the market. Price margin from N20 to as higher as N80, this makes our product the product of first choice. Finance source: Bootstrapping

Hello Yolo,
I am writing to congratulate you on achieving this recognition. Anything that concerns protecting the environment is my soft spot. Recycling plastic and using it in construction may seem far fetched but it is real, I have witnessed it. The question I will leave you to digest over is how far you think you will get with this esp because some countries have already banned plastics. How will you cope?
Kindly vote and comment on my idea here
