In hopes of supporting the women and young girls of garbage collectors, the Association of Protection of the Enviroment (APE) is proudly sharing their unique art.
Zabaleen Art is a Facebook platform that sheds light on the simple productions created by young Egyptian women. Today, the Internet is celebrating their latest products; jewelry made from recycled Nespresso capsules.
Facebook user, Diaa Raafat, took to social media to celebrate the hard work of Zabaleen Art which was made possible by hundreds of volunteers. Raafat shared the detailed process of recycling the collected Nespresso capsules and turning them into jewelry, totes and even sandals.
This year, Egypt has been on a mission to achieve sustainability and limit plastic waste. The ladies of the Zabaleen are doing what the world is fighting so hard to teach us; separating waste, unleashing your inner craftsman and making a living while saving the planet.
