    The ladies collect plastic bags from the local garbage dump to make baskets and other art works for sale. Lucy Wambui is among the women and she holds a dozen of plastic bags. Some blue, black or printed in the affordable colors of a local supermarket.

    It is just remarkable how these women have managed to create a business where others just see waste.

    Thank you for posting that, Molly.

    Yes, also in South Africa women and children and using the environmentally polluting plastic bags to create bags and hats -- "knitting" or "weaving" plastics and magically turning the results into usable household items, also mats for wiping feet on.

    Near where we live, in a Coloured/black area, we have a "childrens' haven" basically where kids are looked after while the parents work, where the children are rewarded for bringing bags of plastics and glass for recycling.

    Many of us contribute towards a little "shop" where the kids can (after handing in their bags and being rewarded according to mass and weight) choose basic things to take home: 2 minute noodles, soaps, toothpaste, deodorants, school writing books, pens, tea, coffee, sugar ... etc.

    It's working a treat.
