In Ghana, approximately 33% of households use 'sachet water', or approximately 500ml sealed plastic bags of water, as the primary source of drinking water. Sachets appeal to customers in different socioeconomic lifestyles, and because of the large prevalence in Ghanaian society these sachets are also a significant part of local plastic waste. Janice and Jonathan Allotey used their understanding of the prevalence of water sachets as an important part in developing their environmental education focused nonprofit Creation Care Concept. Their organization envisions a future where waste recovery is commonplace, and for Janice and Jonathan, it seemed natural for their community education and engagement efforts to begin with the water sachets. Join Jessica Mambula as she interviews Janice and Jonathan on their organization and their belief in the knowledge that in one's own small way one can make a difference in a local community.
