In November 2019, through one of our founding members – Nestlé Ghana, we initiated a collaboration with the Pure Water Waste Collectors Association with support from the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation. We have provided a total of 20 tricycles and helmets, 2,000 picking tools, 1,500 pairs of gloves and 1,220 nose masks to the association to enable them in the plastic collection drive in communities in Accra. Members of the association who are beneficiaries of the tricycles buy plastic waste

from individual pickers in selected communities in Accra, sort appropriately and sell to recycling plants. While ridding the environment of plastics, this initiative is also creating jobs. This project promises to collate large volumes of plastics, a total 380 tons of plastics have been collected between November 2019 and

April 2020.
