The Birth of An Idea

In 2017, for the first time in over two decades, I returned home to Haiti and witnessed marchans, street vendors, selling fruit, vegetables and meats on top of debris.I witnessed large piles of waste burning in the streets. There was an absence of waste management infrastructure and no one to tell these people of the health implications that come with improperly disposing waste. Because of this, people are left to dispose of their trash by dumping it into the canals, open waterways, or burning it in the street. From this experience, EcoRenew Solutions was born.

What We Do

EcoRenew Solutions is transforming garbage to gold in Haiti and Miami and curbing the pollution crisis by focusing on recycling land and sea waste. EcoRenew Solutions creates paver bricks from discarded plastic that can be used for landscaping, driveways, roofs and building material. In turn, people properly dispose of their waste and not rely on burning, dumping it on the streets and waterways. Individuals gain dignified employment through collecting recyclables and selling their waste to EcoRenew Solutions. With less marine and land pollution, public health improves as the exposure to diseases are decreased.
