- A young lady is showing that nothing should be tagged as waste as they are even more useful at that state
- The lady, Nzambi Matee, is the chief executive officer of Gjenge Makers, a company that converts waste into bricks
- She does this with the aid of a machine prototype she formed while at the University of Colorado Boulder
At a time the world is dealing with the growing crisis of environment pollution by reason of waste littered haphazardly, a young lady is putting those waste to good economic and profitable use.
The lady, by name Nzambi Matee, runs the Gjenge Makers, a company that is concerned with gathering those waste that end in oceans, landfills and other natural places and converts them into bricks for building construction in Nairobi.
The Nairobi-based lady was, according to Colossal, got inspired to venture into waste recycling after having a handful of encounters with wastes on the streets of Nairobi.
Sustainability Champions report that the company which has been in operation for three years and counting has successfully recycled 20 metric tons of plastic and have their sights set on achieving 50 metric tons.
29-year-old Nzambi had, before founding this company, worked as a data analyst and oil-industry engineer but quit her job to start up the company.
She reportedly came up with the machine prototype that turns the waste to bricks when she was at the University of Colorado Boulder on scholarship.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported how a Nigerian-American lady invented a football that can produce electricity and power 6 hours of LED light.
The inventor, Jessica, who had her upbringing in the United States, Poughkeepsie, New York has a dual citizenship - a Nigerian as well as an American.
The Harvard Business School graduate and the second child in a family of four is all shades of excellent lady. She is not only an inventor, Jessica is also the chief executive officer of her own company and a venture capitalist.
