Our Purpose

Facilitating Waste Transformation On a Massive Scale

Our Story

WasteWorks began as a project idea, to test out sustainable design methods during one of the module’s at THNK School of Creative Leadership. Using the landfill development in the city of Cap Haitien (Haiti), our small team mapped out stakeholders in the waste management industry and reframed Haiti to becoming a ground zero for waste transformation innovation. 
While in Amsterdam, which is a major hub for sustainable and circular solutions, we were introduced to waste transformation companies that work with organic materials, electronics, plastics, tires, styrofoam and textiles. Our research led to understanding that our societal and economic systems are overdue for redesign.  
We are passionate about people living with dignity and having agency over their environment. We believe in developing an alternative that promotes equity. We are here to help the current system of trash management undergo a drastic evolution towards turning waste into value.
