ABOUT TRASH LUCKY

Recycle and win gold and more! When you sort and donate your recyclables to Trash Lucky, you earn raffle tickets for winning prizes such as gold or shopping vouchers. Earn raffle tickets based on the amount of plastic, paper, glass, or metal you recycle. Trash Lucky sells the recyclables to recyclers and uses part of the income to fund raffle prizes.

Trash Lucky’s vision is plastic-free oceans and its mission is to incentivize people to recycle and divert plastics from landfills and oceans. Based in Bangkok, Thailand, Trash Lucky is a pre-seed startup that has received initial investment and grants from DTAC Accelerate (Batch 7), Government Savings Bank, depa, NIA, and WWF Thailand.

AWARDS

Trash Lucky feels honored to have received various national and regional awards. Our founders had an idea of turning recyclable waste into lucky draw tickets to incentivize people to recycle. They pitched the idea at DTAC Accelerate “Practice Round” and won first place out of 40+ startups. It was the first validation and the birth of Trash Lucky!

Since then, Trash Lucky has won prestigious awards such as Royal’s Cup H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, Government Saving Bank’s Startup Award, Plastic Data Challenge, and many more.
