CONNECTING THE DOTS

Our holistic approach to waste management involves connecting the dots across diverse sectors such as Waste Mining, Forestry, Food, Plantation, and Agriculture, allowing us to create a comprehensive and sustainable solution.

MINING WASTE

At RekaLagam, we've harnessed the potential of Zeolite and Dolomite from surplus tile-making materials, giving them new life as stunning pigments. Our approach fosters a circular economy, minimizing waste while providing you with pigments that speak volumes.

Our palette isn't just colors; it's a journey through Indonesia's vibrant culture. Explore Sagaranten Terracotta, Cigaru Brown, and Cijiwa Yellow – pigments named after their Sukabumi, West Java origins. Each stroke of these pigments connects you to the heart of local communities and sustainable practices.

FOOD
WASTE

Waste food generated by restaurants, markets, and various other sources can be transformed into valuable natural pigments. This innovative practice not only addresses the pressing issue of food waste but also has a substantial impact on sustainability. By reusing food waste to create natural pigments, we reduce the environmental burden of disposal and decrease the need for synthetic colorants, contributing to a more eco-friendly and responsible approach

FORESTRY
WASTE

The inclusion of forestry in the natural pigment industry has significant implications for both conservation efforts and the colorant market. Forests abound with plant materials that can yield natural pigments, like Merbau from Papua.

When managed sustainably, forestry practices that focus on sourcing these materials support the cause of forest conservation while providing a renewable source of eco-friendly colorants.  It encourages responsible forest management and offers sustainable alternatives to synthetic colorants, which often have detrimental environmental consequences. Moreover, merbau can become natural pigments enhances the biodiversity of these regions and empowers local communities.

PLANTATION
WASTE

Plantations specifically dedicated to cultivating plants for natural pigments, like indigo from the indigofera plant, have a distinctive impact on the colorant industry. The production of vibrant and sustainable hues through these plantations serves a dual purpose. Firstly, it caters to the growing demand for natural and environmentally friendly coloring agents across various sectors, such as textiles. Secondly, the cultivation of plants like indigofera offers a more environmentally friendly and resource-efficient approach, reducing the ecological footprint associated with synthetic pigments. 

AGRICULTURE
WASTE

When agriculture integrates the use of natural pigments to enhance the color of crops and agricultural products, it brings about a profound and far-reaching impact. Beyond the immediate aesthetic enhancement, this shift to natural pigments has the potential to revolutionize the agriculture sector. It significantly reduces the reliance on synthetic dyes and chemicals, thereby promoting a healthier and more sustainable agricultural ecosystem. By offering products with fewer chemical additives, this transition positively influences consumer choices and benefits the environment.
