Josephine- Plastic collector

Josephine collects plastic for a living

Don’t throw away items made from plastic. There are many women who are now making a living out of collecting plastic. They walk in the neighborhood looking for it, so all you have to do is just store it somewhere and ask them to pass by.

This is the important discovery I made this Sunday when Josephine passed by my house. She collects plastic and sells it for KES 10 per kilo. The one who collect it store it until it is enough to be shipped in industrial area for re-cycling.

So I got her number and promised to keep away all the plastic for her.
