SKIM PLASTIC POSITIVE IMPACT REPORT (APRIL 2021)
PLASTIC POSITIVE IMPACT REPORT APRIL 2021
Empower collaborates with waste recycler and social enterprise Trashusers in Ibeju Lekki, Nigeria. Though Trashusers started their business in 2015, Empower and Trashusers initiated developing a collaboration during the Fall of 2020, as part of an early stage pilot. The recycler has quickly adapted to use the digital registration platform of Empower, and already registered tens of tons of PET, PVC and LDPE plastics that was either already in nature or would have ended up there without their effort to organize such collection. The collected plastic comes from both beaches and land based sources.
