We believe an equal world is an enabled world. This International Women’s Day, we celebrate our women collection members who provide for their families and care for their communities helping stop ocean plastic.
Recycling infrastructure in many countries is part of the informal economy. Many women who work in the informal economy lack financial security due to the absence of labour laws and health benefits.
Plastic Bank helps formalize the informal waste sector by providing the opportunity for collection community members – 45% of which are women – to exchange plastic waste for additional income and life-improving benefits. We reveal the value in plastic and enable our collection members to build a better future for their families and communities.
Meet Lise Nassisse from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Lise is a mother of seven children, a 2010 earthquake widow, and one of our full-time collection community members.
