To mark this years’ World Earth Day, We opened our hub to the public to learn about what we do with recyclables and we also in partnership with GEMS 4 had our subscibers redeem their points for cash and household items.
Elated subscribers were full of thanks to us and our partners, GEMS 4. Several individuals and organisations including Konga and Procter and Gamble were on ground to learn what we really do with recyclables and also drop their recyclables. Click here to see moments from our World Earth Day Event.
GEMS 4 which partners with us seeks to improve income and employment opportunities within Nigeria’s wholesale and retail sector, particularly for the poorest and most vulnerable. The project is working with business associations, service providers, producers, retailers, wholesalers and other actors involved in the market, linking them so they work together and serve each other better. Additionally, the project is building local capacity and changing market incentives so the sector better meets the long-term needs of the poor.
