A big thank you to YOU! 🙌

It is with great pride that we announced last December that we had raised 3.5 million euros in funding! Led by Sandrine Poilpré, Erwin Faure and Édouard Vergé, this fundraising is our springboard to become the European leader in the collection and recycling of non-recovered waste!

This great project is made possible thanks to you! Our partners who have been supporting and accompanying us for the past 6 years, our investors who believe in us and our project and defend it with us, and finally our customers who have trusted us and committed themselves to a more responsible and sustainable approach.


Our ambition for the coming years is clear: 

  • collect and recycle over 100 billion cigarette butts
  • expand into 4 new European countries before the end of 2023
  • recruit about fifteen additional employees, in the commercial division, impact, etc.
  • generate more and more hours of indirect employment, via integration and disability structures

This round was led by Asterion Ventureswith the participation of Impact Business Angels, AQUITI Gestion, New Aquitaine Region, Newfund associated with financing from Bpifrance, France Active, Mirova and Banque des Territoires . And with the precious support of the Fundraising Department of ADI Nouvelle-Aquitaine.

This fundraising is great news, but also a great responsibility to meet the ambition we have set for ourselves.

We can't wait to share the rest with you!
