Waste Pickers

All around the world, waste pickers are the backbone of the recycling system.
Material Change

Waste pickers are material experts, knowledgeable about which materials can be resold and recycled. As corporations aggressively market single-use plastic packaging around the globe, the livelihoods of waste pickers are negatively impacted by increasing amounts of no-value, non-recyclable plastic packaging. Meet waste pickers around the world as they participate in the Break Free From Plastic Global Brand Audit and identify problematic materials and top corporate polluters.
