All Women Recycling
Turning discarded plastic bottles into unique gift boxes.
Discarded plastic bottles are sourced from landfills, street waste collectors and collection points located in schools around Cape Town. Female employees of All Women Recycling craft the bottles into unique gift boxes, known as kliketyklikboxes, which serve a worldwide niche market.
One of All Women Recycling’s strengths is its strong ties to international distributors. This distribution network is used to provide markets for its products and the products of its partners.
Collection vehicle drivers, dump site sorters and street waste collectors profit from having additional sources of income. The process of recycling plastic bottles raises awareness of environmental concerns, keeps townships clean and contributes to mitigating climate change.
All Women Recycling is the main partner producing gift boxes from recycled bottles and selling them internationally.
CONTIGO provides business support and advice on fair-trade standards to All Women Recycling.
Mandla Recycling, is a free recycling service for households and supplies plastic bottles to All Women Recycling.
