Anna Godefroy - Grassroots Change
Binners’ Project is a group of waste-pickers aided by support staff dedicated to improving their economic opportunities, and reducing the stigma they face as informal recyclable collectors.
Anna co-founded Binners' Project four years ago. By supporting and organizing recycling as a livelihood for the poorest, Anna believes the Binners’ Project showcases how ecology paired with social inclusion can grow local economies.
In addition to her leading role at Binners' Project, Anna is the former co-chair of Urban Core, and currently the co-chair of the Exchange Inner City, a joint initiative between the City of Vancouver and local Downtown Eastside organizations.
