KNOWING THE VALUE OF PLASTIC WASTE. ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT OF COMMUNITIES.

One of the biggest problems to the plastic pollution problem is putting a price on plastic waste and empowering locals and communities to understand the pricing mechanism and teaching them to weigh their plastic waste and know instantly how much money they are making off it when they sell it. This weekend Mckingtorch Africa was in Achimota community to training community members on a lot of things including how to operate the weighing scale and pricing of plastic waste they collect. We also oriented them on the plastic waste buy-back programs and which organizations are involved and their locations. We are pushing the circular economy agenda.
