Henry Pino

Founder & Owner

Henry Pino has been in the chemicals industry since 1993, when he created a company to help hotels, hospitals and restaurants reduce their stockpile of chemical drums by refilling them with his fleet of tanker trucks. In 2003, Mr. Pino sold that company to dedicate more time to his high-rise development company, but always understood that his original concept could work at the consumer level. Environmental Solutions Group was founded to achieve a real and positive impact on the environment – reducing plastic waste on a massive scale by providing the same refilling capabilities to anyone with the Ecopod system, as well as other eco-conscious innovations.

Gabriela Pino

Co-Founder

Ever since learning about ocean pollution at a young age Gabriela has made it her personal mission to create greener solutions on a global scale. As an alumni of New York University, Gabriela focused her coursework on Sustainable Urban Development. She is committed to creating a better world through offsetting our environmental footprints and being an innovator in sustainable development. The Zero Waste concept resonated with Gabriela and she found ways of incorporating this lifestyle. One day, while participating in a beach cleanup along the shorelines of Miami, the debris along the coastline were seemingly endless. Gabriela witnessed the devastating effects of Microplastic pollution firsthand and realized that she needed to do more to help. Together Henry and Gabriela created the refill station idea for Ecopod.
