EcoCare Waste Initiatives is a recycling company with the mission of challenging existing wasteful paradigms and the throw-away culture by giving value to waste while advocating against waste generation.

The company aims at solving Ghana’s waste handling challenge with an unconventional waste management approach – by exploring socially, environmentally and economically impactful business models.

EcoCare is currently registered as a social enterprise with the key focus on education against indiscriminate waste disposal. It is also committed to providing distribution channels for recyclable waste materials and reducing pressure on landfills with the overarching goal of being an active driver of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 6, 12 and 13.
