THE STORY:

Executives Without Borders USA wrote -

In the wake of the 2010 earthquake, Executives Without Borders assisted NGOs with delivery of safe water and procurement of temporary shelter materials. While in Haiti, we identified a major problem contributing to the spread of disease across the country. The canals are clogged with plastic. As heavy rains pour into clogged canals, bacteria and cholera infected water overflows, spreading into markets and communities.

Currently, most Haitians see no value in plastic, and treat it only as trash. Soon, they will see it as an opportunity for job creation and income generation as plastic garbage is recycled and sold as a commodity on the world market. With our corporate partners, we established a framework to create local franchises across the country that create jobs collecting, crushing and transporting plastic to Haiti Recycling’s headquarters in Port au Prince.

As plastic collection increases, further job opportunities arise through the
processing of that collected plastic into finished goods.

Our Program has Three Phases:

Phase 1:
Expand collection and harvesting of plastic, creating sustainable jobs and incomes through a network of independently owned and operated neighborhood collection centers.

Phase 2: Build Haiti Recycling’s capacity to further process recycled
plastic, creating additional employment and increasing the value
per ton of plastic collected.

Phase 3: Drive investment in Haiti to build factories that turn recycled
plastics into products for domestic use and export.

Plastic Recycling = Sustainable Jobs & Economic Growth

Initial capital investments are needed to build the collection centers. After the initial investment is made, the centers and associated incomes are sustained through revenues from selling the collected plastic.

Together we can create thousands of well paying, sustainable jobs, help the environment and reduce the spread of disease. We can once again reveal Haiti’s beauty and make it an attractive place for foreign investment and tourism.

Won’t you help move Haiti forward?
