Namé Recycling: Combining revenue, jobs, and sustainability
Only 4% of plastics produced in Sub-Saharan Africa are recycled.
But Namé Recycling in Cameroon has a mission to promote a circular economy by giving a second life to plastic waste and reducing plastic pollution. At the same time, they hope to bring economic opportunities to the communities that they serve.
Namé collects various kinds of plastics through a network of informal collectors and businesses in Cameroon. They then turn much of that waste into large, fully recycled pallets that replace the need for wooden ones.
