Reimagining Waste. Reimagining lives.

Making a difference starts within you.

The power of purpose.

At Brightmark, we believe making a mark means making a difference—which includes helping others fulfill their future aspirations and lifelong goals. Brightmark is a proud partner of RecycleForce—a company dedicated to making a difference for the environment and humankind.

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 acclimation back into the workforce while helping the environment.

Sustainability isn’t just for renewing the environment; it’s about restoring humankind.
