OUR SOLUTION

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

The ocean pollution crisis is obvious and we are running out of time, but we won't linger in complaining. Instead - we are rolling up our sleeves and helping our oceans and planet. We aim to become one of the solutions to the global ocean plastic problem. 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 collaborating !

THE Team

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.
