Waste management is an enormous problem for many African countries. Streets and gutters are clogged with polythene bags, and empty water sachets. As communities grapple with how to keep their environs clean, an NGO in Ghana called Global Mamas is offering tangible solutions by converting litter discarded on our streets into handbags, raincoats and pencil cases.
As a fair trade organization Global Mamas offer the people who work in their factories fair wages and an exposure to the international market. Global Mamas is turning trash to treasure in a socially responsible way. Watch the video attached to find out more about this organization http://youtu.be/SuUb4q4xu5c.
