Information
There is extreme value in plastic, glass, paper, and textiles. This value is obliterated when we throw these materials away, however it is boosted when we recycle it. WASTED has made tremendous strides in transforming the way people perceive and level to which people recycle plastic. We are giving plastic new value, and in turn catalyzing a shift toward more sustainable cities.

Now, we are expanding to paper, glass, and textiles, in addition to plastic. We are currently putting the most of our attention on activating the community to join WASTED and become either our WASTED Neighbor or WASTED Rewarder. That said, we are active in various local neighborhood events, festivals, debates, and presentations, and we are looking for motivated and enthusiastic urban leaders to join this exciting endeavor.

On our Urban Activation team, you’ll join us (CITIES and WASTED) in blazing new trails towards tomorrow’s circular, social and sustainable cities. As WASTED ambassador your essential role will be:

— Presenting/representing WASTED in local events;
— Engagement with citizens to understand perceptions of WASTED
— Engagement with current and potential rewarders/ promotion of WASTED as a tool to foster sustainable consumption;
— Qualitative survey analysisl

Interested? Write to us! We look forward to hearing from you.
