Creative use of resources brings hope for the future of humanity. The WASTE BIN TO LIVING ROOM program is an initiative of two young businesses in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, Nigeria which helps in providing jobs to young unemployed while cleaning up the city's waste. The founders Mr Itohowo Inyang, a trained art sculptor and Mr. Akanimo Akan, a microbiologist / corporate communicator found a way to combine working in sustainability and creative metal fabrication.
In the metropolitan city of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial hub, with an ever-increasing population of 18 million people, it is normal to find waste of all forms littered on the streets. But where the inhabitants reject these unwanted materials, Wecyclers, a waste recycling social enterprise, have found new use for them.
