Globally Great is a video sharing platform dedicated to the dissemination of entertaining stories about sustainable development and solutions that have an impact on a global scale.
Through shared videos, Globally Great aims to inspire, educate and inform on how countries are moving towards a green economy for more sustainable development.
That’s why the Globally Great platform shared the Green Keeper Africa video!
Indeed, Green Keeper Africa, through its activity, contributes to:
- Management of highly invasive aquatic species: Green Keeper Africa uses water hyacinth as a raw material to produce an sorbent fibre capable of absorbing up to 17 times its weight in hydrocarbons.
- the reduction of subsoil contamination by industrial pollutants: This sorbent fibre is used by industrialists to better contain their pollution situation on land or water by effectively absorbing accidental leaks or spills.
- strengthen Benin’s local economies through its community collection system. This collection system offers additional income opportunities to more than 1000 people, 80% of whom are women.
