Trashy Bags Recycling Centre Ghana
One of the biggest problems in Ghana is trash and pollution. If there were a particular product that is the biggest cause of this issue, it would be drink sachets. Drink sachets are the most popular item to buy on the street and highway, and because of this they also account for the majority of litter on the ground. This plastic packaging material is chosen because it is easily accessible and hygienic, but it is not bio-degradable, and therefore, takes quite a toll when it is not disposed of properly. Trashy Bags decided to take advantage of this durable material by using these discarded sachets to create bags, wallets, briefcases, etc. Items that have a much longer and useful life span than the drink sachets counterparts from with which they are made.
The main aim of Trashy Bags is not just "cleaning up Ghana," but also to inform the public about the issue of pollution and provide dignified work for the women who sew the bags.
In association with Global Mamas, Trashy Bags is constantly growing and expanding increasing its work force and up-cycling the plastic waste
