Creation Care Concept – The Renaissance Show 2019

Date grant awarded: July 7, 2019

Jonathan Kofi Dugbartey and Janice Adukwei Allotey are the founders of Creation Care Concept, a dynamic organization in Accra, Ghana raising awareness on environmental sustainability by crafting accessories from plastic waste. The Renaissance Show is their annual event to showcase avant-garde and functional products made of up-cycled HDPE sachets and PET bottles.

This year’s edition is a fashion show framed within a drama entitled “The Cost of Plastics.” Indeed, all of creation pays the price for mismanaged plastics. The event is aimed at provoking a paradigm shift, especially in children, so that plastic waste is seen as a resource that ought to be managed effectively within the context of a circular economy.
