Haiti - Environment : HP invests $2M in a plastic washing line in Haiti
On Thursday, Hewlett-Packard Company (HP Inc.) announced it was investing $2 million in a plastic washing line in Haiti, which will expand its supply chain dedicated to the recycling of transoceanic plastics, which is expected to create over 1,000 new job opportunities in the country.

This new washing line will allow the local production of cleaner, high-quality recycled plastic for use in HP products. It will help Haiti expand its recycling capabilities and compete more effectively on the international plastics market "Suppliers Lavergne and ECSSA have partnered with HP on the project since efforts began in 2016. This investment continues HP’s longstanding commitment to diverting ocean-bound plastic and contributing to a lower-carbon, circular economy while providing jobs and education opportunities locally," said HP.

Let's recall that HP began its efforts in Haiti in 2016, when the company partnered with the First Mile Coalition to reduce ocean-bound plastics by converting plastic bottles into recycled material used in Original HP ink cartridges. These efforts have already diverted approximately 716,000 pounds of plastic materials, or more than 25 million bottles, from reaching waterways and repurposed the material into HP cartridges.

Globally, HP has converted more than 199 million pounds of recycled plastic into 3.9 billion HP Original ink and toner cartridges since 2000.
