Plastic Bags

When you visited Ghana, did you try to recycle the water satchets? I don’t know if they would really grind, but perhaps shred? I’m curious how you would adapt your machines for something like that.

And then of course there is the sheer volume in question! What did you think when you were there?

Haven’t tried recycling, but indeed there are lots of those water bags! They could definitely be recycled, its a matter of getting started.
