About us

ECO BAGS: Is a livelihood project implemented by Africa Youth Ministries to empower Women Economically, to provide employment, and to save the environment. Eco Bags project, is an innovation of Recycling Cargo Fasteners into very beautiful shopping bags. Plastic Cargo fasteners can be found thrown everywhere in shopping malls/arcades and malls by traders who import goods most especially China, Dubai, Hong-Kong, Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea. Once they open their boxes, the cargo fasteners are thrown away for the municipal authorities to collect as rubbish. The Cargo fasteners Recycling Initiative hits 3 birds with one stone e.g. In fighting to protect the environment from non bio gradable plastic waste which cannot decompose, Create employment for unemployed and an educated youth, women, and girls, and fight poverty among the urban poor. Out of the Cargo strand recycling initiative, we have been able to make very beautiful, durable, washable shopping bags in different sizes, and pick-nick or prayer mats, for further details visit R http://t.co/HR8k2Bujlc
