For too long informal waste pickers in Africa have been marginalised, experienced suffering and large-scale disadvantage. It’s time we alleviated these problems for the waste pickers and their communities.
Are you a company that wants to change lives sustainably? Then partner up with Mr Green Africa. Mr. Green Africa incentivises marginalised waste pickers & base of the pyramid stakeholders by offering premium prices and added benefits, to provide a continuous supply of valuable recyclables which in turn creates pathways out of poverty for them, while simultaneously creating a positive environmental impact.
Mr. Green Africa processes the recyclable material into valuable raw material and feeds it back into plastic manufacturers’ supply chain to enable them to achieve their circular economy goals, and benefit from raw material cost savings.
Building strong relationships with waste pickers is more than just giving them access to fair and stable prices. It’s also about enabling a dehumanized population to regain their dignity. By trading with Mr. Green Africa, waste pickers benefit from a variety of supplier loyalty programs and services such as life and entrepreneurial skills, health care assistance, as well as access to micro-loans. .
Find out how you can partner with Mr Green Africa and support informal waste pickers who have languished at the bottom of the waste hierarchy for too long.
