We're looking for projects that
help solve the
waste crisis!

 

Now on its fourth year, Reimagine Recycling is once again seeking emerging circular economy initiatives to support through workshops and grant funding. It aims to train entrepreneurs with existing projects that help address issues on coastal community engagement, improving the welfare of the informal waste sector, mainstreaming gender in waste management, and preventing waste from rivers and seas.
 
Successful applicants to Reimagine Recycling Year 4 will attend a series of virtual workshops and mentorship sessions. Winners will attend in-depth workshops in Metro Manila and receive up to PhP500,000.00 each to grow their projects.
