The name says it all: the aim of Waste2Work is to create work out of waste. Hurricane Irma created an enormous amount of extra waste on Sint Maarten, having a significant impact on the environment, communities and public health. We believe waste has value and there are endless opportunities to create jobs in this sector. In SXM’s first Upcycle Center, we train young adults to create custom made furniture from reusable waste materials. We organize sustainability workshops for children and the general public and provide support to entrepreneurs to launch their business with innovative ideas out of waste.
