Mission Statement

Accessible Solutions to Plastic Waste

While this covers a broad spectrum of issues within our public systems, re:FILTER's purpose is to share information with communities - researching along the way to understand beyond the norm.

Challenge Existing Systems

We intend to challenge existing systems by pairing with communities and implementing new, innovative waste infrastructure. We plan to extend the conversational boundaries of the average public network, expand public awareness on the subject of waste, and engage public spaces with interactive installations to advance waste culture.
