1. A Clean Environment

A reduction in trash means a cleaner environment and improved sanitation, which will reduce occurrences of malaria, cholera, and other poor health afflictions.

2. More Cash Flow

More cash in people’s pockets means a reduction of poverty.

3. It’s Fun!

TrashCash allows for adults and youth to become more involved in their communities and enhances education on trash, recycling and sustainability.

4. A Sustainable Business

The greatest percentage of income generated will go to the users, while a portion will also go to shop owners, and the smallest percentage will be used by TrashCash to keep the business running.

5. We All Benefit

Recycling will reduce carbon emissions, mitigating climate change that impacts us all.

 Hello I'm Stephany - I'm the Chief Trash Officer, I love to solve challenges with a business model and as much as possible make it simple through technology. I'm software developer and a telecom engineer. Wondering what's the connection to trash?? I can't tell either. But we are set to make this happen.

Hey, I'm Chris.  With an MSc in Environment and Development from the  London  School  of  Economics  and  Political  Science (UK), the first thing I can think is let's hit the street and clear all that trash as well as empower households to sort waste. I don't want to go all about the effect of climate change but the fact this TrashCash is going to cut down a  whole lot of carbon emissions and reduce the occurrence of floods and diseases in Ghana. 


 I'm Frank, the business man, making sure we get good value for the trash we sell.
