Founder and Executive Director of Environment360, Cordie Aziz, stated that she is looking forward to the week’s activities and feels that the activities will have a great impact on the students participating.
“The EU Delegation to Ghana’s support to the recycling club, the school play and recycling contests are great ways to help build awareness in children about how they can help combat climate change. We are happy to be a part of this year’s celebration as we support sustainable habits in Ghana.”
Environment360 started in November of 2013 and formalized in December of 2014, the Organization helps communities harness the full value of their waste streams by creating community, corporate and school recycling programs. The organization also specializes in creating indigenous education programs. The organization works with community members to create tailored recycling programs that fit the needs, culture and values of the community it serves.
The organization has built a solid reputation during the past five years and has had the opportunity to work with partners such as Fan Milk, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Dow Chemicals.
In 2016 the organization was named the recycling coordinator for the city of Accra by the AMA Solid Waste Department and now currently supports the AMA school recycling program by providing education and collection of recyclable materials.
The organization received a special mention at the 1st Green Ghana Awards and Expo in 2016 and was the UNICEF Reach for Change Winner in 2015.
