Hundreds of children in Haiti collect recycled goods from the Truitier landfill. It’s an activity that’s dangerous for them and their families. HP and other corporations are helping out by taking that plastic themselves and turning it into ink cartridges, while giving these kids an education.

The famous printing company, along with Thread, teamed up back in September 2016 with a commitment to fight poverty and create sustainable recycling opportunities in Haiti. One of their major goals was to get kids out of dumps and into school. So far, they’ve offered more than 200 scholarships and given children full health exams.
