Brendah commented on Recycled Block Gardens Africa

Hi Kate,
The next steps are; sensitizing first the unemployed youth and women on environmental preservation. We will then encourage them to collect plastic wastes from their environments bring it to us for recycling to make our block gardens. In turn, we award them credit points to be cashed out as money or buy themselves a block garden.

After we have collected a substantial amount of plastics (thermoplastics), we will outsource production of our second prototype from Jesco Uganda, a well-established plastic company. We will then test for its usability, flexibility, durability test e.t.c.
