What do you do?
We transform plastic bottles and dvds in amazing jewelry. We train local women in Kenya (only Maasai Mara at the moment) to create jewelry out of plastic. we give them a package with all the tools needed and we sell the items created to tourist in 2 luxury tented camp (Little Mara Bush Camp and Mara Bush Camp). We also organize cleaning team and we go cleaning places in Kenya.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity in your industry?
Plastic is every where and women love jewelry.We will never run out of it. There is no limit to imagination. And with time we could be able to recycle more plastic and create different and useful items that can make life of local people a bit better.
What impact will changes in your industry have on consumers? the world?
What is your biggest goal right now?
Cleaning Kenya out of plastic and make people realize that we need to take care of our planet.
What kind of support or types of people do you need to accelerate your success?
I need a market! Right now we are selling only to tourist in the Maasai Mara for 4 months a year. I would like to sell more to be able to employ people on a permanent basis and clean more places.
What makes you or your work different from everybody else?
We want to clean Kenya out of plastic and create awareness. We are working on a small documentary to show in villages and in schools to show people that plastic can be re-used to make money, to create useful items and that it is very armful to the animals and environment. We hope to make a difference one day.
