François Lesage

Plastic Flamingo

Fondateur & CEO


After 8 years of experience in high level organizational consulting within large public organizations in France, such as the Ministry of Defense, François decided that he wanted to use his passion for ecology and adventures in a larger scale and steer the efforts of The Plastic Flamingo in depolluting our precious nature. He holds an MBA from the Institut Mines-Télécom Business School and a MA in Public Affairs from Sciences Po Paris. Arrived 3 years ago in the Philippines with his family, he started from scratch The Plastic Flamingo, which is now the leading and fast growing startup in the plastic waste management field in the Philippines, with 100+ collection points in Metro Manila, 100+ partnerships, 100+ tons already collected, and an up-cycled plastic eco-lumbers factory in Muntinlupa. He wrote 3 novels, cycled 7,000 km from France to Cambodia, and is the happy father of 3 charming kids.
