About the Organisation

We fell in love with recycling plastic and its impact to the environment and livelihoods of communities in Uganda. About 600 tons of plastic are consumed daily and disposed of improperly in Uganda alone.

Close to 51% of the uncollected plastic in Kampala has resulted in the clogging of sewers. Only less than 5% of plastics in Uganda get recycled. It takes approximately 450 years for plastic to decompose.

As an alternative, most people have resorted to burning them, which leads to a release of harmful toxins in the air.
