About Us

We are all about working with content creators around the world to spread awareness about sustainable living through engaging multimedia.

Our story

PickWaste and Sustainia Media as a result all started when two Canadian Grade 12 High School students set about to invoke change in their community by taking small but consistent actions.  Sam Demma and Dillon Mendes started PickWaste with the goal in mind of cleaning up our common home and environment that we all share. PickWaste is all about organizing weekly 1 hour long cleanups and also helps spread awareness through their Sustainia Media Blog where writers from all around the world share their knowledge about sustainable living. Our writers write are from all different backgrounds and are thereby very diverse in their experiences which is why we have topics on our blog ranging from ideas for individuals to live a more sustainable lifestyle to how businesses can be more sustainable in their policies and many more! So what are you waiting for? Start taking those small but consistent actions to invoke change in your community and start writing for Sustainia Media today!

Also check out our partner PickWaste for student volunteer opportunities! We, along with the volunteers have completed over 250 cleanups and provided over 5000 volunteer hours. Our cleanups are also a great way to make friends and give back to the community in a meaningful way. Remember, if you know a location that requires a cleanup, please don’t hesitate to email us at info@pickwaste.com.

Remember, change within a society and change that impacts the world starts with an individuals. So don’t feel discouraged if you feel that your actions aren’t having an impact because the actions you take are having an impact on others everyday. So be that change you want to see in the world and don’t hesitate to take those small but consistent actions everyday!
