4 mn read


In the heart of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, a silent green revolution is taking place. The deserts of innovation are sprouting with sustainable startups, determined to reshape the future. In this article, we’ll explore the rise of eco-friendly businesses in the MENA region, highlighting the visionary entrepreneurs and their groundbreaking solutions. From solar-powered tech to sustainable fashion, these startups are paving the way for a greener, more sustainable future.

The MENA Region: A Cradle for Innovation

The MENA region has long been known for its vast oil reserves, but now it’s making headlines for a different reason: sustainable innovation. With a growing awareness of the environmental challenges facing the planet, entrepreneurs in the region are leveraging their creativity and resources to address pressing issues. Let’s dive into some of the remarkable startups that are spearheading this movement.

Recycling and Waste Management
Waste management has been a significant challenge in many MENA cities. However, forward-thinking startups like “Ecohub” are changing the game. They’ve developed a comprehensive waste management system that emphasizes recycling and reducing landfill waste. This not only cleans up the environment but also generates employment opportunities.


EcoHub is a group of eco-factories creating landscape design products from recycled materials based on polymer-sand technology. EcoHub intends to become a leader in green technology and create a fully eco-friendly living environment for residents of the UAE, Dubai and other Middle Eastern countries.

EcoHub’s urban street furniture is designed to improve the quality of life in urban areas. The furniture is perfect for public spaces such as parks, plazas, promenades, and playgrounds. It is also suitable for commercial and residential areas, as well as educational institutions. EcoHub’s street furniture is designed to be environmentally friendly, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. Customers can choose from a wide range of colors and finishes to match their needs and preferences. EcoHub’s eco-friendly materials are extremely lightweight and require minimal maintenance, making them an ideal choice for areas with limited space. EcoHub’s urban street furniture provides a cost effective solution to create attractive public spaces while helping to protect the environment.




Using recycled plastic as a raw material, EcoHub produces eco-slabs that can be used for a wide range of applications, from home decor to furniture. By recycling plastic waste, EcoHub manages to reduce the amount of non-biodegradable plastic waste in the environment and significantly reduces its ecological footprint.


EcoBoards consist of a mixture of recycled plastic and sand, and then are heated and compressed in a special mold. The result is strong, lightweight boards that can be used for a variety of purposes. The boards are waterproof and fireproof, which makes them ideal for indoor and outdoor use. They can be used as furniture such as chairs, tables and benches. EcoHub also produces a variety of landscaping products such as patio tiles, flower beds and boxes. By creating these eco-friendly products from recycled materials, EcoHub hopes to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the environment while creating eco-friendly home and landscape design solutions.

 Recycle 200,000+ tons of plastic waste
 +400,000 trees to save
 100+ eco-factories
