We’re On A Mission To
Reimagine Waste.

Join Us.

Our planet needs environmental solutions. We don’t have time to waste.

We started in 2016 as a group of engineers who decided to turn our attention from other corporate ventures to being part of some of the most transformative innovations in our fight for the environment.

Through science-first approaches and powerful partnerships, Brightmark is transforming organic waste into renewable natural gas and creating innovative approaches to plastics renewal.

Our Ethos

Mother Earth provides the ingredients needed to sustain life. She urges us to explore the open frontiers of our imagination and adventure far beyond our wildest dreams.

She offers us pristine waters to swim in, vibrant and exotic jungles to explore, rustic forests that provide clean air, peaks and valleys to traverse, and protection from a chaotic, yet magnificent universe, filled with speeds, temperatures, and distances that seem almost impossible to comprehend.

How do we respectfully use these amazing gifts she has provided, in the most beneficial way, not only for ourselves but for all who call this unique and wonderful place home?

Brightmark exists because of our love for the planet and the need to make her a safer, cleaner environment for all who call her home. We are here to preserve her and help her thrive. We are all in this together.
