“rePurpose Global is an opportunity to increase waste pickers' income by giving value to plastics that don't have demand and therefore, end up in landfills or in the environment.”

Action meets additionality.
Creating impact where it truly matters, every piece of plastic removed by us is one that would otherwise remain in the environment for centuries. First and foremost, we conduct a baseline assessment to understand how your impact can strive beyond the status quo. Through rigorous and exhaustive documentation and verification, we ensure 100% additionality is guaranteed.
We don't landfill, burn or incinerate. Sending plastic waste to the safest end destination is our motto.
Waste Ventures India
We help WVI engage existing networks of waste collectors to incentivize the collection, recovery, and processing of low-value plastic waste, specifically Multi-Layered Plastics. In doing so, we give the ignored and worthless plastic waste value, and keep it out of the environment.
