About the production team in Uganda.
The business was founded in 2018 by three women, Aweko Faith and Naluyima Shamim who both grew up in slum areas of Uganda and Mema Rachel who was a refugee from Congo. They wanted to set up a business that could help to provide employment for people in their community whilst reducing the massive issue of plastic waste in their local area.
Plastic waste disposal in Uganda is increasing. It is estimated that 600 tons of plastic is disposed of in Uganda daily - whereby 51% in the cities is left uncollected and ends up in drainage channels, natural water sources, or on the roadside - at the expense of local communities.
The solution - waste is not waste until you waste it. Women in the local communities are hired to collect, wash and dry the plastic bags. 50kg of plastic is collected every month by a team of 10 single mothers who receive a fair rate. After fusing the material, the bags are then transformed by young tailors into our beautiful bags. One final Reform bag is made out of 15 plastic bags.
These bags are sustainable, durable, waterproof and affordable. Due to their strong characteristics, these bags give you comfort and safety anytime, anywhere.
The Impact - By providing employment to single mothers and young marginalized tailors, it brings up a sustainable product that helps to save the environment from single-use plastic pollution.
