We are storing lots of plastics,papers,glasses. In this project we aim to establish a plastic recycling factory. we are currently working in environmental conservation activities too for this we have a tree and flower nursery site and we provide trees and flowers and also plant them in the city. We also work in garden greenery activity. To establish a plastics recycling factory in the Jimma city currently we seek funding .
From the early beginning all of our members were unemployed and we organized to create a job. Totally we created a job opportunity for 25 persons currently and in the second phase when we establish a plastic recycling factory we will create a job for 150 persons.
