What are water sachets?

Pure water sachets are small plastic sealed bags containing 500ml of treated water. It’s the cheapest and safest way for Ghanaians to consume water but is devastating to the environment due to the lack of education and facilities for recycling plastic in Ghana.

Upcycling these water sachets is creating awareness on the importance of utilising waste and making it into something of value while showing love for Mother Earth whilst we look to better alternatives than plastic for every day use.
