First there was Toilet Twinning, which was launched in 2010 to raise funds for Tearfund’s water and sanitation projects. Then we started Tap Twinning in March 2020, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, there’s Bin Twinning – to raise funds for Tearfund’s environmental and economic sustainability programme. We keep our administration costs to an absolute minimum as we serve some of the world’s poorest people.
This is our vision for a greener world:

£2 million +

Tearfund’s global work to tackle waste at the grassroots level

150,000 lives +

transformed through community waste management projects in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean

26.4 million

tonnes of waste produced by UK households each year MUST be reduced and single-use plastic must be eradicated by 2030

Bin Twinning funds global environmental and economic sustainability programmes run by Tearfund

How our costs are paid for

Bin Twinning’s entire running costs are within Tearfund’s overall fundraising budget.
