About Trashy Bags Africa

In a world inundated with plastic pollution, Trashy Bags Africa emerges as a beacon of innovation and sustainability. With a global plastic production set to skyrocket to 1.3 billion metric tonnes by 2050, and Ghana alone contributing 1.1 million tonnes annually, our mission gains even greater urgency.

Plastic waste poses a formidable threat, particularly in developing nations where recycling infrastructure lags behind production rates. In Ghana, where 63% of citizens rely on sachet water packaged in plastic as their main source of drinking water, the need for responsible waste management is dire. Discarded sachet bags not only choke waterways and landscapes but also perpetuate health hazards and environmental degradation.

At Trashy Bags Africa, we've embraced a transformative approach to tackle this crisis head-on. By upcycling reclaimed plastic sachets, we breathe new life into materials destined for landfills or incineration.

Our process involves meticulous cleaning and crafting, ensuring minimal energy consumption and maximum environmental impact, add value to a material that would otherwise end up in landfill or burnt, adding value to a material that would otherwise end up in landfill or burnt.

We recognise that sustainability extends beyond mere production methods. Hence, we operate under a holistic ethos, prioritising environmentally sustainable practices and socially responsible policies. Through a network of commercial enterprises, we collect nearly 250,000 pieces of plastic waste monthly, providing income opportunities and instilling value in waste. 

Our commitment to a circular economy framework drives us to innovate continuously. By recycling product offcuts into plastic pellets, we not only reduce ecological footprints but also supply local manufacting industries closing the loop on plastic waste.
