Why Support Plastiki Rafiki?
As a fully non-for-profit student led organization and a registered charitable trust, 100% of the profits form the sale of our products goes towards fulfilling our mission - Cleaning up our local environment and empowering communities to earn a living through plastic recycling and creative product design.
First and foremost all our products are made from 100% discarded plastic collected from the environment. In addition, since 2018 thanks to the sale of our products and the support from people like yourself we have been able to:
- Design, develop, and manufacture new plastic recycling machines to make the recycling of plastic easier, safer, cheaper and more environmentally friendly.
- Design molds for unique products that we share for free with the Plastiki Rafiki Network.
- Organize and support clean up and environmental restoration initiatives around Kenya, focussing on the locations of our "Collections" (Kenya Coast, Mt. Kenya, Karura Forest, etc..)
- Set up community plastic recycling spaces, cleaning up the environment while providing much needed local employment.
