Public awareness and trained community groups in old town on plastic waste substitution, recycling, reduction, recovery, and safe disposal practices. 

Equipping the women artisans with machinery, tools, and equipment for making sculptures and items out of plastic waste as well as training women artisans on product development and packaging was very well informed.

Empowerment is just a means to an end in ensuring that plastic waste management is mainstreamed.
