BIRTH OF THE NGO
Recycl’AGE Association is newly born.
It was created in 2015.
In 2014-15, Pierre Manchot, president of Recycl’AGE Association, cycled from France to Mongolia. Accompanied by Lucie Dulau, they spent one year on their bikes. Of the 18,000 kilometers they travelled, not even one was spared from the mark of humans. The most common waste was product packaging consumed directly in the car and thrown away on the roadsides. Essentially: water bottles, cans of beers and sodas, glass bottles. These are all recyclable.
In March 2015, Pierre and Lucie are having a lunch, sitting in the square of a small village in the desert of Dasht-e-Kavir, in Iran. They offer candy to a dozen children. Instinctively, all the children leave the packaging waste of the sweeties on the ground and instantly the wind carries it far away, in the sandy dunes. These packaging papers will survive to the little boys. Here is the starting point of the Recycl’AGE Association and the Amazing Waste Project.
OUR BRAINS, OUR ARMS
A talentuous team, for sure.
