As a part of one of eWomen’s initiatives, eWaste, they created trash bins made out of waste tyres. The product is cheap, durable, and is environmentally friendly because it is used to collect waste that can be further recycled. 


Impaction's mission is to connect people to jobs in the social impact space and provides “easy” ways people can give back to their local communities.
