Abstract

eTrash2Cash is a social enterprise that helps low income people in Nigeria exchange all their wastes for cash incentives, through that, it raises grassroot awareness on environmental sustainability and climate change. All wastes collected are reprocessed and recycled into reusable materials, that are environmentally-friendly and sustainable. For instance, food wastes are recycled into an organic compost for use by smallholder farmers, and the recycling of plastic wastes into plastic lumber, which reduces deforestation, and mitigates the effects of greenhouse gasses, which causes climate change.
