Alexis Barnes – Purposeful Pails

Alexis Barnes is the founder of Purposeful Pails, a project that provides a solution the problem that approximately 10% of all purchased paint is left unused. Unused paint is susceptible to being discarded inappropriately–leading to detrimental environmental effects or left to occupy landfills worldwide.

The need to simplify the process of recycling paint is evident, and Purposeful Pails is a pilot initiative to facilitate the recycling and reuse of paint in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky region.
