Waste for Life is built on partnerships

Our Waste for Life partners comprise an international network of people who pool their talents and resources to develop inventive, community driven, needs-based technologies. We freely disseminate those technologies and apply them where we can to help redress the social and ecological injustices that disproportionately affect people who live on society’s margins.

Our network is eclectic and cooperative because we know that problems know no disciplinary boundaries.
