Plastic Trash Transformation
Port au Prince produces a shocking amount of plastic trash that litters streets, clogs water canals, and overwhelms the capacity of municipal waste removal. A modest Rich in Mercy grant helped launch an initiative of the Association of the Franciscan Familyto transform plastic waste into economically valuable products such as floor tiles, building blocks, and roofing tiles using technologies developed and implemented in Brazil by Veiga Maquinas, S.A. The initiative partners with other religious congregations and sectors of the municipal government of Port au Prince.
