eTrash2Cash is a social enterprise that helps low-income people to directly exchange their trash for cash, which they use to better their lives. For instance, access health insurance plans from their saved earnings. All trash collected is reprocessed and directly recycled into sustainable and reusable materials, e.g biodegradable trash bags made from plastic wastes.
