where everyone counts.
MAKING A VALUABLE DIFFERENCE TOGETHER.
Sure We Can is a non-profit recycling center, community space and sustainability hub in Brooklyn where canners, students and neighbors come together through recycling, composting, gardening and art. Our mission is to support the local community, particularly the most vulnerable residents, and promote social inclusion, environmental awareness and economic empowerment.
For over 9 years, Sure We Can has supported canners, who are people that make a living collecting cans and bottles from the streets and redeeming them for 5 cents each. Today, it has evolved into a community center that promotes a sustainable urban culture and facilitates a circular economy.
