Why work with ÉcoMégot?
Let us remember that our challenge is significant: to collect the 40 billion cigarette butts thrown on the ground each year in France to recycle them in order to avoid pollution of the soil, our seas and oceans and our natural environments. All over France, ÉcoMégot collection agents or partners of the social and solidarity economy (ESS) are responsible for collecting your cigarette ends.
The “ Solidarity Company of Social Utility ” approval is issued by the State to support the development of SSE companies. Having this approval certifies that we work on a daily basis , in favor of social utility as a priority, in each of the projects that we develop.
Our desire to create jobs for people who are far from it, locals who cannot be relocated, who are also on the path to integration, contributes to the creation and sustainability of economic activity in the region.
