Thread transforms trash from the poorest countries into dignified jobs and useful stuff people love. Each month, Thread collects hundred of tons of plastic waste that blights the communities and canals of Haiti and processes it into a renewed good. Stories and data that focus on quality of life improvements, job creation, environmental progress and economic development create a transparent supply chain that connects Thread’s customers to their positive impact on the world.
To date, Thread has collected 30 million bottles, sold more than half a million pounds of recycled plastic into the US, and supplied income for over 1300 Haitians.
