The Aling Tindera Waste-To-Cash Program

In 2019, Plastic Credit Exchange launched Aling Tindera, a waste-to-cash program engaging women micro-entrepreneurs to serve as sustainability champions of their communities. We continue to activate this ecosystem to clean up our environment. Some benefits of the program include:

Cleaner environment

By putting a price on plastic, communities are incentivized to turn in their post-consumer plastic waste, speeding up the waste management processes of local communities

Increased income opportunities

Aling Tindera partners enjoy incremental income gains by upselling their collected plastic waste to Plastic Credit Exchange, helping provide better financial support for their families

Organized informal sector

Aling Tindera engages women micro-entrepreneurs who handle small community stores, thus creating an organized network of plastic waste management partners

Government savings
