To mark World Water day on March 22nd we organized an event called Ghana Bottle Up w here we invited citizens of Accra to donate their used water bottles which are now being used by local artists to help build a playground for an orphanage in Jamestown. In one evening we collected over five hundred large water bottles and our sponsors handed out several prizes to those who contributed the most.
Based on this success we would now like to add several collection points around the city so we can create a more long term solution for the lack of recycling in Accra. The idea is to create a recognizable container where people can drop their bottles and then deliver them to sellers at local markets who have already expressed interest in receiving them on a weekly basis.
If you would like to help us with this initiative kindly contact us below.
We would also like to thank our sponsors again for contributing to this successful event:
