"When we clean our environments, we clean our minds and create foundations for a prosperous future"
Nepal is beautiful. A country rich in history, colours and community. This stunning country, however, has one of the lowest individual average incomes. The lack of basic provisions and finances, has led to a spiralling plastic pollution problem that is particularly damaging to the slum areas in Nepal.
When Sansar first went to Nepal we were astounded by the intense natural beauty of the country and the warmth of its people. We wanted to create a solution that allowed the beauty of the landscape to shine through its mounting plastic waste heaps. This solution had to be sustainable and has to empower the local community by changing attitudes towards plastic waste and recycling.
Since January 2020 we have been implementing exchange expeditions whereby we encourage local individuals to collect and exchange plastic waste for rice provisions.
