Reooze is a company whose main aim is to reduce the plastic waste from the environment. The way thatReooze is tackling this problem is by collecting plastic waste from the local 3D printing community. This plastic is then recycled into a 3D printing filament that is more economical, greener and will be the first locally produced 3D printing filament thus reducing carbon emotions as well. Reooze is also planning on recycling a range of different plastics while also using the plastic produced for other manufacturing services.

Greeroads Malta is committed to reduce the carbon-footprint by reducing the use of cars and promoting car sharing. Their solution is twofold: first, they have launched a flagship product through a smartphone application called; BREEZE that makes it easy for licensed car owners to use sustainable methods of transportation especially during rush hour. The effective use of the app, which currently facilitates carpooling at the University of Malta, in turn reduces private car use and leads to less cars on our roads. A reward system is integrated to ensure citizens are rewarded for their positive actions, thus being a catalyst for positive behavioural and social change, promoting responsible and sustainable mobility. Secondly, Greenroads Malta aims to raise further awareness and inspire a positive change in mobility behaviours in Malta by encouraging green mobility in the workplace, university, workshops, and events.
