Haiti Foundation Against Poverty Creating a Circular Economy/Triple Bottom Line

,

Gift-of-Hope-1

Haiti Foundation Against Poverty has created the first true circular economy or true triple bottom line organization. My definition of a circular economy is helping a social need (people in need), economical need (the bottom line), and the environment all at the same time.  All three aspects actually feed off each other and help of each other for a sustainable model.

Haiti Foundation Against Poverty have really figured this out and implemented it well. They have partnered with a couple of local corporations and businesses and have asked them to help with expertise in recycling, and logistics. They have also asked for the corporations and businesses scrap fabric which is extremely hard to recycle in the USA.  By taking the scrap fabric from the USA to Haiti and adding the expertise from these organizations they have created quality products of bags, dolls, and other products.  These products are then shipped back the USA to be sold. Here is the link to the store. https://squareup.com/store/hfap-gift-of-hope

They also have a boutique in Midland MI and sell their products at the The Bridge in Holland MI.

Haiti Foundation Against Poverty is helping solve a large problem of how to deal with waste materials while helping the poorest people. They are a true shining light of what can be accomplished.

I would Encourage you to look into this organization and its great products.

Below is a Diagram showing how this can help every company and non-profit.
