OUR SOLUTION

"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in." - Greek proverb

The previous generations have left us with a lot of crucial issues to solve in a short period of time, but we won't linger in complaining. Instead - we are rolling up our sleeves and helping our ocean and planet. We will never claim to be the single solution to the ocean plastic problem, but we aim to become an important part of the global puzzle. Everyone, from educators, circular economy players, sustainable development promoters, beach cleaners, recyclers, corporates and many more play a crucial role for us to succeed. If our vision speaks to you - get in touch and we are looking forward to colaborating !

SAMANTA SKRIVERE
Co-founder

The idea of Ministry of Waste was born during a trip in the Philippines which left Sam with a strong feeling of wanting to do something about the beach waste issue. After 8 years spent in different roles within the IT industry and volunteering with various startups she took the jump into the polluted waters of our oceans.
