Contribute To These Initiatives
The Ragpicker Initiative
More than 90% of India does not have a proper waste disposal system. A lot of garbage clearing thus is the done informally by ragpickers. They work without any job security, salary or dignity. Not just that, they are regularly exposed to cuts, infection, and respiratory diseases apart from poverty, humiliation, harassment, and abuse on the streets.
Your contribution will ensure that we can provide food, medicine, sanitation and education to Ragpickers.
The best place to recycle plastic waste is at source.
Our aim is to start ragpicker co-operatives across villages, towns and cities. We will assist these co-operatives to manage and successfully run small plastic recycling units to maximize their earnings.
This is a capital intensive program and we need assistance from high net worth individuals and corporates.
Please contact us at email@example.com for more information and copy of our high level business plan.
Plastic is Precious
Precious Plastic is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation. Our singular mission is to reduce plastic waste and enable a better life for ragpickers.
By creating plastic recycling co-operatives we aim to eliminate plastic waste at source. The recycling co-operatives will not only provide fair prices to ragpickers for plastic waste but also additional earnings via revenue sharing through the sales of recycled plastic.
