CREATING VALUE OUT OF WASTE IN ORDER TO GENERATE A NEW SOURCE OF INCOME
Our abandoned plastic fishnets collection program aims to create awareness about the issue of Ocean contamination and provide a new source of income for the local collectors. The program will involve thousands of fishermen over 3 regions (West, Central and Volta) in 11 points of collection. We do have chance to collaborate with Repatrn, a local experienced PET waste collector.
Samuel is one of our Sea2see ambassadors, responsible for the West Region, based in Elmina. He is responsible to collect, sort and clean what the local fishermen bring him. His objective is to gather 16.000 Kg of plastic per month.
