Donut Waste: Transforming Coffee Grounds in the Circular Economy

Our vision

Our vision is to be the creator and enabler of a sustainable circular WA community.

In the future, we see Perth as the most circular community that shares and reuses resources and no longer needs landfills.

Our mission

Our mission is to lead the way in building a sustainable circular economy through the collection of plastic beer clips, the innovative upcycling of coffee grounds into products, and the delivery of comprehensive sustainable education. We are committed to creating a community where resources are shared, reused, and waste is minimized, ultimately eliminating the need for landfills.

About the Founder

I’m Sharka Hornakova, a passionate waste warrior and the founder of Donut Waste, a social enterprise dedicated to fostering a circular economy through innovative waste solutions. With a background in working for a local e-waste recycler and as a waste education officer for a local council, I decided to start my own social enterprise to create a bigger impact in the field of sustainability.

Donut Waste isn’t just a business to me; it’s a mission to significantly contribute to reducing the environmental impact of our daily actions. I’m committed to inspiring others to join the movement towards a greener and more responsible world.

In December 2023, I completed a Diploma of Sustainable Living with the University of Tasmania, further enhancing my knowledge and understanding of sustainable practices.

Beyond my dedication to sustainability and waste education, I’m a passionate animal lover (aka crazy cat lady), a certified fitness instructor, and a yoga teacher. My diverse interests reflect my commitment to a holistic approach to life and my desire to inspire positive change in the world. I eagerly look forward to collaborating with you and your community to create a more sustainable and environmentally responsible future.
