About Trashy Bags, Accra

Trashy Bags is a non-governmental organization in Accra, Ghana which turns plastic waste into reusable shopping bags, fashion accessories, school supplies, and other products. It is located in Accra, Ghana. The company employs about sixty Ghanaian workers to collect, clean and stitch plastic trash in the form of sachets that contained water and other beverages. The packages often become litter because local recycling initiatives and waste management infrastructure are insufficient and because most Ghanaian people throw their waste on the streets. In Ghana, drinking water, yoghurt and juices are sold in small plastic bags called sachets. This form of packaging was introduced in Ghana in 2004 to provide safe drinking water. The sachets can be opened easily in the corners to drink from, but after use the package is discarded and will usually end up as litter or in informal trash heaps. The company has reprocessed approximately 20 million sachets since its founding. Every month about 200,000 plastic sachets are collected and brought to Trashy Bags by a network of collectors employed by Trashy Bags. Its products are sold locally, sold online, and exported to other countries.

  • Very creative, hardworking personnel

  • Awesome people making great products for a great cause!

  • I had visited the Trashy Bags store in Osu and the friendly staff told me that you can have a tour around the workshop in Abelempke. The tour was fantastic and it really interesting to see the process of how a Trashy Bag is made! All the workers were so welcoming and friendly and eager to show off the bag they were currently working on. The workshop also has a store selling a range of their products. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and recommend the tour to anyone.
