By collecting, processing, and trading human waste hair, this social enterprise has redefined the narrative surrounding waste products. Their mission extends beyond mere waste management; it is about fostering community empowerment, and economic growth, and countering the detrimental environmental impacts of waste human hair.

In the past quarter, Capilli has garnered significant accolades, underscoring its commitment to innovation and social impact. 

They have been recognized with the award “BPI Direct BanKo Negosyo Ko Award” by BPI Sinag 2023 for their combination of good financial performance and social impact.

Capilli also joined the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines which signifies the company’s integration into a vast business network. With over 700 members and a robust government partnership, this membership opens doors to unparalleled business opportunities on economic and legislative fronts.

Currently, Capilli is trying to break more barriers by launching its online store on Shopee. Their star product, Grow Mats, made from recycled human hair, is not just a product; but is also a game-changer for eco-friendly agriculture. These mats offer a slew of benefits—sustainability, better water retention, natural nutrient enrichment, weed resistance, and cost-effectiveness—showcasing Capilli's commitment to a greener future.
