Transformative impact where it's needed most.

Developing vital, robust, and inspiring projects.

We're changing the system with a best-in-class process for creating and running plastic waste recovery projects.

All plastic collected is additional to BAU


Recovering plastic waste that would not otherwise have been collected.

We conduct thorough and regular baseline studies in each project location. Projects often focus on multi-layer and flexible plastics where the baseline recycling rate is almost zero.

Asha Moolya

Project Anmol Kinara, Udupi, India
“Working as part of Project Anmol Kinara has been a great blessing for me, as I now return home early in the evenings and have more time for my family.”

Asha Moolya, once burdened by the long hours and limited staff at Solid Liquid Resource Management (SLRM) in the Nitte Grama panchayat, found a lifeline when she decided to join Project Anmol Kinara in Udupi. Her previous job had her working long hours with no holidays which often resulted in spending limited time with her family.

After joining rePurpose Global’s Project Anmol Kinara she had the opportunity to find a job with reasonable hours allowing her to balance work and family. “My role [with the project] has given me a chance to earn more money to support my husband and improve our quality of life while also being able to spend more quality time with my family.”
