Abenteuer Afrika’s Recycling Revolution!
Recycling is not yesterday’s news… Employment is tomorrow’s dues.
Abenteuer recently launched several recycling projects, transforming old newspapers, junk mail, shredded documents and plastic grocery bags into fireplace bricks and carrier bags. In addition to benefitting the environment, the initiative has created employment opportunities. Minette Areses, formerly un-employed, now works full time at Abenteuer managing our Recycling Revolution!
Using a compression device, Minette recycles waste paper into energy-saving, non-toxic paper bricks which burn easily, leave a minimum of ash and eliminate the need for chemical firelighters.
The unique, environmentally-friendly carrier bags are crafted from old newspapers which constitute the body of the bag; the handles are made from carefully plaited plastic grocery bags. Thanks Minette!
