Plastic waste management, manufacturing and re-afforestation
Explain your project in details:
Chalonn recyclers is a small social enterprise plastic waste management & manufacturing company founded in 2019 dedicated to converting plastic waste materials into commercially viable products. Our products include pavement blocks, tiles, bricks, backpacks, ventilators and more. We also buy recycled papers in whole sale quantities from vendors which are used for making card boards, paper bags and others. We preserve the environment through employing people who collect the plastic wastes around communities from districts and areas in Northern Uganda such as, Gulu, Kitgum, Arua, Pader, Lira, Nebbi, Pakwach, Amuru and others. With enough funds we are also aiming at establishing more plastic waste collection centers at homes, hotels, hospitals, schools, playing grounds and other public places We are also aiming at raising awareness on re-afforestation through planting more trees in communities around Uganda.
