As Elephant vert produce argicultral bio-intrant and and among them compost which is based on animal and vegetable waste , I propose that Elephant vert choose poor villages in a subsaharian countries which practice agriculture and construct a platform in which it can buy their waste to make compost and provide work to them , for this sens the project can be financed by the Antenna foundation which cares lot about sustainability
