Children in the Wilderness Zimbabwe, in partnership with ourselves, has launched a glass recycling project that has seen a significant reduction of waste material in the region, while simultaneously creating income for local community members. The glass recycling group comprises 15 men from the Ngamo and Ziga villages, who substitute river sand with finely crushed glass material to make breeze blocks which are sold to Wilderness camps, the community and surrounding lodges.
