Launching of the Sankofa Bottle

Hipsters of Nature is unvieling the new name of our bottle sculpture at Mawuli Senior High School.
Our bottle sculpture is now called the Sankofa bottle.The name Sankofa is an adinkra symbol. It is a word in the Twi language of Ghana that translates as going back to take what is forgotten is not a taboo. We want to change the mind set of Ghanaians, to regard waste not as a problem but as a potential resource and promote the goal of a zero waste society. Currently, we have the Sankofa bottle at Alliance Française, Accra and Lycee’ International school at East Legon for collection of bottles. The collected bottles are recycled by Skyplast company and reused by Hipsters of Nature to demonstrate multi-storey gardens to students and households in Nima.

 

Mawuli Senior High School is the First runner for the national school  climate change drawing contest toward COP 21. The program was sponsored by the European Union, British High Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency.
