What it means to Make Your Mark
We’re on a mission to Reimagine Waste—creating circular solutions to solve some of the world’s most pressing waste challenges. Our Make Your Mark page encourages you to get involved by taking little (or big) steps to create a world without waste by reducing your consumption, recycling materials properly, and educating others on being more sustainable.
Change starts here
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
– Barack Obama
The power of purpose.
Second chances are powerful. When someone embraces an opportunity to improve or to walk a different path, they can change their circumstances and inspire others around them to do the same.
Brightmark is committed to second chances, and that’s why we are proud of our ongoing partner RecycleForce. This Indianapolis-based social enterprise helps formerly incarcerated people reenter the workforce by training them for careers in recycling. Through RecycleForce’s program, individuals learn valuable skills, receive personal mentorship and coaching, and begin their acclimation back into the workforce while helping the environment.
We Make Our Mark because we care.
We believe in practicing what we preach—which is why we’re partnered with incredible businesses, organizations, and non-profits working to make a lasting positive impact on people and the planet.
