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.

When you approach one problem and become good at it and become an expert in it then you can make bridges to tackle more issues from that
