We're looking for projects that help solve the plastic waste crisis.
Now on its third year, Reimagine Recycling (RR3) takes on a different format by seeking solutions to support. It aims to advance existing projects addressing issues in waste segregation, recycling/upcycling, improving the welfare of the informal waste sector, and mainstreaming gender in waste management.
Successful applicants to RR3 will attend a series of virtual workshops and mentorship sessions. They will also get a chance to receive up to PhP500,000.00 to grow their projects.
