We are delighted and proud to announce our Switcher of the Month in March is Besma Belbedjaoui and her team at Plasticycle Algerie. This Algerian start-up has been contributing for a more circular Algerian economy with its actions since 2013. Check out how this Algerian change maker has ruminated the idea of recycling plastics and raising awareness around the issue.
“According to a 2015 Science Magazine study, eight million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans. The number can increase by 10 folds over the next ten years"
