Clean Marondera, a ZeroWaste community based organization of Zimbabwe, started with the vision to clean Marondera city and upcycling waste into something valuable. Their projects started in 2014 with few people but they gradually gained support from the local community. Clean Marondera organization is also a training center where people can learn the value of upcycling and making something innovative with trash, which not only solve the problem of waste management but also provide employment for various people who are involved in trash collection, rag picking and junk selling works.

Elizabeth told in her documentary, she has started her project in 2014, to manage the discarded waste. she came up with an idea to turn waste into cash. All her work is done voluntarily, she is doing her work without any monetary help. All her eco products are handmade and made by local community people.

Zero Waste Products By Clean Marondera…

In order to make ECO products, they first collect waste from nearby residential areas, this waste further goes through different processes. They sort these waste materials for upcycling and recycling purposes. The waste which is chosen for upcycling is converted into amazing eco products and the rest of the recyclable material is sold.

They create different products like reusable bags, mats, hats, school bags etc. People of this ZeroWaste community sell their handmade eco products, which enables them to pay for their children’s school fees. This ecopreneurship journey has empowered them to be self dependent and change makers for the environment.

Their products are sustainable and produce zero waste. They make eco products with waste clothes, plastic, tetra packs, wrappers and e – waste by hand swing methods. If we talk about the market price of their eco products, each product costs under 5 USD.
