Debrah and Mitchell met each other while studying Industrial product design in Holland.
Their study focuses on mass production of plastic products, how to design the product, different techniques to make products, what rules to imply to make the product makeable, different characteristics of plastic types, and most importantly the dangers of plastic.
After graduating they decided to move to Debrah’s home island Curacao and start their project Limpi.

Limpi means clean in the native language of Curacao, Papiamentu.
When we started with Limpi we came across the platform called precious plastic. These are the first machines we built to start making products. We then upgraded and evolved the machines to be able to produce more efficiently and produce more products.
It is Debrahs and Mitchells mission to make a change and create awareness on the plastic problem the world is facing. By showing everyone what you can create with plastic waste we hope to educate everyone that plastic waste is not trash, and is a valuable material that can be recycled.
Graduated college as Industrial product engineers and decided to start project Limpi
Moved to Curacao to start up the project. We started in a small shed in the garden and started building and testing out our own machines
Made Limpi into a business and started to get orders for custom products
Moved to a bigger and more professional location and improved our machines.
