Pearl Recycling is a social-oriented organisation with the mandate of recycling solid wastes into beautiful works of art. In developing countries, waste products are naturally thrown in canals and drainage, dump inside oceans or burnt in an open space.
Climate change and environmental sustainability is alien to most developing nations where people are more concerned with what goes into their tummies than what exist around them. Unfortunately, the effects of these acts are glaring.
The air we breathe are becoming more toxic, flooding is becoming incessant, ocean lives are becoming threatened and Malaria is killing more pregnant women and children.Pathetically, government policies are not working. In a bid to stop the people from dumping wastes indecently, government came up with sanctions and policies that are simply not working.
So, we found a way out. We understand the culture of Africans that it’s better to preach sustainability from the angle of empowerment and that is what we do at PEARL RECYCLING.
We make creative works of art from solid waste products like tyres, bottles, newspapers, magazines, straws, plastic cutleries, wood, unused CD tapes, sea-shells and every other solid waste products. The idea came from a trip to the United Arab Emirates in 2012 where a piece of art that cost several hundreds of dirhams was discovered to be made from corn husk.
We are not like everyday interior furniture/décor merchants. Ours is a different blend of interior crafting where exquisite and off the shelf home, office and personal furniture and decors are made from recycled products like woods, bottles and metals. We make Tables, Chairs, Wall mirrors, Wall Frames and Flower vases from unused materials.
We started operation in 2014 and we have made commendable impression among our clients and trainees. We have built relationships and partnerships. We are a Tony Elumelu Foundation Fellow and winner, WIMBIZ Impact investment competition.
