Our Story - Our team

Brendon Kenny

Co Founder & Head of Engagement

I am passionate about the environment and believe business should create profit with purpose. I have over 35 years of Business experience at Senior CXX level Management, Business Creation, Sales, Marketing and Consulting within the construction, technology, distribution sectors.

I helped develop the pioneering business, Recipro, which manages surplus construction materials throughout the supply chain and moves them into community projects to avoid the materials going into landfill. The system reduces waste and creates valuable community assets.

I am also an award-winning serial entrepreneur, an early adopter of technologies and passionate about how technology can solve real world problems.

I currently run Ellanstone, a technology solutions business aligned to the construction and manufacturing sectors. I am connected at both national and local government levels, I am also Chairperson at BITA British Irish Trading Alliance on the Isle of Man.

I believe with the right strategies and connections Changing Streams can create exponential change in the eradication of plastics in not just the construction sector but globally. I believe we owe this not just to our children and children’s children but to all forms of life on this special planet which has been put at risk by our collective historical quest for convenience, I believe that convenience has turned out not to be that convenient.
