Point of Shift was founded in 2020 by Kelsey McWilliams. After noticing a gap in the market between technologists and individual consumers, Point of Shift was started to help implement, scale, and spread awareness of circular sanitation solutions. At Point of Shift, we envision a greener world where all bio-waste is valued and utilized in circular systems.
