About Corethics

Founded in 2017 by Melissa McCabe, Corethics is an independent not-for-profit established to create sustainable and thriving communities in the developing world.

We partner with trusted community organizations working on the ground to tackle some of the most complex issues affecting human society and the environment.

Our Bali, Indonesia Program consists of two projects: Water for Bali and Waste 4 Wealth. #waterforbali addresses the devastating depleting water sources on the Island of the Gods. In partnership with IDEP Foundation, we are able to replenish water, provide water stewardship education, and raise public awareness. #waste4wealth tackles an "invisible" threat to human and environmental health - toxic chemical pollution from industry. Through circular wastewater treatment solutions, innovation can transform communities freeing them from the edges of poverty.
