In a report to shareholders last week, Founder Nev Hyman announced 19 planned projects ranging from display villages that will drive market development efforts in the South Pacific to larger projects in Asia and Latin America that will require local factories to be built to meet the demand. He states that the outlook for the company is extremely positive, buoyed by current demand and long term global population growth. A vocal advocate of "Doing Well by Doing Good" Hyman is inviting philanthrocapitalists from all over the world - to become part of the movement. Are you a philanthrocapitalist? If so, email us to find out more.

Respected Australian surfboard designer #NevHyman and architect Ken McBryde, of leading design house Hassell, have collaborated to create a series of cyclone-resistant shelters for remote #Vanuatu #communities decimated by Cyclone Pam in March 2015.

The shelters, which were based around an initial prototype called #NevHouse, utilise #recycled plastic and laminated veneer lumber to realise their distinctive design featuring high-pitched roofs, large overhangs and floor-to-ceiling louvres for maximum ventilation in tropical environments.
The buildings take only five days to construct and are designed to withstand a category-five cyclone.

Dear friends who journeyed with us to Vanuatu,

We hope you are all safe and well and back in your normal routine after our recent experience in Vanuatu. Please find attached a thank you note from Gordon Irons and the rest of the team at Nev House for making the launch of the Enkatalei project such a huge success. Out of every new experience comes something positive: for us we found friendship and future collaboration and for the people of Enkatalei they received safety in the event of another cyclone, not to mention a renewed sense of pride.

Thanks again, hope you enjoy the read.

"There are many people doing what they can to combat plastic ‪#‎waste‬, from reducing their own plastic use to making products out of plastic waste...

Another truly inspirational individual doing his part to combat this waste is Nev Hyman.

Nev Hyman is an Australian ‪#‎surfboard‬ shaper who is famous for designing surfboards for world champions and continues to design boards for ‪#‎Firewire‬, the company he founded. He has seen many of the world’s most beautiful surfing venues and, as he began to notice more plastic waste in the ‪#‎oceans‬, he decided to do something about it.

Four years ago, Hyman teamed up with Sydney architect Ken McBryde to experiment using recycled plastic waste and wood-plastic composite to make low-cost, sustainable ‪#‎homes‬ to improve the living conditions of tropical islanders in Pacific nations that could be quickly set up by non-expert local labor."

Thank you RecycleNation for the great article! ‪#‎NevHouse‬

#Philanthrocapitalism is a term I heard a few years ago but never truly investigated its meaning.

It’s a word used to describe the coming together of #philanthropy and #commercial opportunity; it’s a way to restructure #social causes to give sponsors something to really #invest in.

Last week, I spent some time with the #Nevhouse team in Vanuatu. Nevhouse turns plastic and other recycled materials into low cost homes, schools and medical clinics. These structures are assembled in days not months, solving the problem of rubbish and housing in third world #countries.
