Wash with Water is now Plastic Negative Certified
Wash with Water is now Plastic Negative Certified by rePurpose Global, one of the first in our industry to achieve a Negative Plastic Footprint
What does this certification mean?
By going Plastic Negative, Wash with Water is not only tackling a $50bn/yr funding gap that plagues recycling supply chains worldwide, but is also adding a crucial income stream for waste pickers and their families in Chennai, India. Today, informal waste workers often earn less than $5/day, work in precarious conditions, and face severe discrimination despite providing a crucial societal service for cities across the developing world. Through this initiative, the company is boosting these waste workers’ income by attaching value to hard-to-recycle plastics, while supporting experienced recycling social enterprises which holistically uplift waste pickers through occupational safety, health insurance, and skills training. "Since 2012, Wash with Water has built a loyal community of the next generation of mamas and papas, daughters and sons who knowingly and purposefully choose plant-based, eco-friendly wellness in their everyday lives. We champion positive environmental change in big moments as well as little ones. We believe that even the smallest steps can make a difference in helping to build a healthier planet." Founder and mother, Stephanie Pascarella.
