Our mission is to support the local community, particularly the most vulnerable residents, and promote social inclusion, environmental awareness and economic empowerment. Sure We Can is a recycling center, community space and sustainability hub in Brooklyn.
We serve a community of more than 500 canners, people that collect cans and bottles from the streets. We receive an average of 50,000 units of cans and bottles a day, which adds to 10,000,000 units a year. This means that we distribute more than $500,000 in the community every year. In addition, we engage with students from schools and universities, local artists and neighbors through composting, gardening and volunteer opportunities.
