Full Product Description: Recycling Rubbish, Renewing Lives. Rehash Trash is a non-profit organisation that makes household and fashion items out of recycled plastic bags. We collect bags from the roadsides, gardens and fields in and around Siem Reap, wash, sort, cut and crochet them into our beautiful products. In so doing, we help to reduce plastic pollution from our environment, and give a vocation to vulnerable women – mums of the Green Gecko kids, for whom Rehash Trash provides a safe workplace, the opportunity to learn a new skill, and the first time to earn a wage in a situation that is neither dangerous nor degrading.
Why these product/services considered as GREEN? (what’sthe impact on the environment/community)
Plastic is a massive problem globally, and especially in Cambodia. With no official recycling services in place, bags can be seen through out Siem Reap province, littering the town and countryside. By collecting and re-using as many bags as we can, Rehash Trash is doing our bit to reduce this plastic pollution and to keep Siem Reap as beautiful and trash-free as possible.
