Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda and Bill Clinton involved in Haiti’s Sustainable Recycling Solutions

Linkin Park multi-instrumentalist Mike Shinoda and former U.S. president Bill Clinton are working in tandem to support the Sustainable Recycling Solutions program in Haiti. In a new video posted on Linkin Park’s official YouTube page, the two are shown visiting the location of Sustainable Recycling Solutions, a project supported by the Clinton Foundation and co-founded by Shinoda.

Sustainable Recycling Solutions offers employment to Haitians by taking plastic waste products and recycling them into saleable items, such as Linkin Park T-shirts. The program not only provides employment to Haitians, but also offers a much-needed recycling program in Haiti.

Since its start less than two years ago, the Sustainable Recycling Solutions project has supplied more than half a million dollars to local residents involved with the program, cleaned the streets of Haiti by taking more than four-and-a-half million pounds of plastic out of the area and recycled more than 113 million bottles.

To find out more about Sustainable Recycling Solutions, visit the program’s official website.

In other Linkin Park news, the band is currently wrapping up work on their upcoming album and setting the stage to embark on a co-headlining tour with Thirty Seconds to Mars this summer.
