Upcycle Africa / Waste to wealth.

Upcycle Africa is a social enterprise that focuses on environmental restoration, protection, and improvement in the lives of marginalized groups of people through waste education and collected/Zero waste campaigns in communities in order to change people's mindset on the way they think and dispose of plastic waste. On the other side, we also connect recycling companies to waste collectors hence improving their employability. We train communities on the way they can turn plastic waste into products of inherent value. We construct homes out of plastic waste while promoting capacity building and entrepreneurship in green businesses.
