PURSCENTS + ENVIRONMENT360

We’re excited to partner with Environment360, a charity based in the vibrant city of Accra, Ghana. They’re doing incredible work in community recycling and are pioneers in this field in Ghana. With facilities in both Accra and Kumasi, they collaborate with everyone involved in the plastic value chain to create inclusive waste systems.

In Ghana, plastic waste is a big issue – about 840,000 tonnes are generated each year, and shockingly, less than 10% of it gets recycled. Environment360 goes beyond just collecting plastic, they also provide technical training to help people develop green job skills, which makes communities stronger, reduces poverty and helps with adapting to climate change. The programme specifically focuses on empowering women, youth, and persons with disabilities.

Purscents is teaming up with Environment360 to host community exhibitions aimed at educating the public about climate change, the circular economy and their role in it. These exhibitions, held in schools, community gatherings, large-scale events, and churches offer an interactive way for individuals to learn about the environmental dangers of plastic waste, how to adopt sustainable habits to reduce plastic waste, and even see live demonstrations of the recycling process using modular recycling technology transforming plastics into reusable household items and many more.

We’re proud to stand alongside Environment360, contributing to their incredible work and spreading awareness about the importance of sustainable practices.
