About Us

The Center for Regenerative Design and Collaboration, CRDC, is a Costa Rican based company that understands a proactive and integrated approach must to be taken in order to harmonize a growing population need with the resulting pressures they put on the environment.

1. Center for Regenerative

The Center for Regenerative Design and Collaboration, CRDC, is a Costa Rican based company that understands a proactive and integrated approach must to be taken in order to harmonize a growing population need with the resulting pressures they put on the environment. It is important we rethink our past and continue to reinvent our future with the management and recovery process of plastic waste as a resource in a growing Circular Economy.

2. Experience

CRDC is the result of decades of focus and experience; a multidiscipline and collaborative effort of dedicated people and entities all having a common mandate to use mentorship and good business to promote positive change. Community enrichment is provided through affordable housing initiatives and free classical music instruction for children, environmental enrichment through a volunteer based mangrove reforestation and beach clean-up.

3. Investigation

Now, following years of investigation, research and prototyping we are ready to introduce the innovative GUA - Costa Rica zero waste packaging process, a product designed and patented by the company’s founder Donald Thomson and now a dedication team of experienced industrial, retail, housing and capital market professionals in New York City and Seattle.



4. Zero waste

GUA is intended to set the bar of "zero waste" to a new level and is the benchmark example of regenerative design and up cycling. The GUA container reconfigures itself from a plastic beverage bottle into a high quality building product which successfully integrates industry, environmental, and community while addressing the growing plastic problem facing our land and marine environments.

5. Resource

According to Doug Woodring, founder of Plasticity, “The Global reach, along with the positive, solutions-based approach……has engaged those interested in managing and recovering plastic as a resource; scalable innovations in plastic that save money; use of new materials; designing for sustainability; and solutions for a world where plastic is used, but without its current footprint.”

6. Award

2016 Beverage World Sustainability Award and his REAP business model was a People Choice Finalist in the 2016 Circularity Awards at the World Economic Forum.
