Plastics For Change has developed an ethical sourcing platform to create sustainable livelihoods for the urban poor while transitioning the industry towards a circular economy. Our deal process and mobile platform provide waste pickers with access to fair and consistent income opportunities.

Similar to fair trade agriculture, our platform creates transparency and accountability from the base of the supply chain to the store shelf. This results in more efficient shared-value chains and higher quality recycled plastic. We provide expertise to help catalyze brands and manufacturers to replace the use of virgin plastic with ethically sourced recycled plastic, thereby immediately improving the social and environmental impact of their products.
