Ed the Bear meets CARE4BASKETS

While we were running our workshops at the EYE Project Education Summit we met Jib Hagen who also had a stand.
Jib is the Global Development Director and founder of care4baskets. CARE stands for Collect And Recycle Ecologically. They collect plastic waste from communities, schools and churches in Ghana.
The plastic waste is woven into these beautiful baskets. Traditionally these baskets are made from straw but in northern parts of Ghana these grasses have become scarce due to climate change. 

The baskets are woven to the same excellent quality of the original baskets.
