Meet Macoumba Diagne the co-founder and CEO of Proplast Industrie, a company that helps collect and recycle plastic to then help create new products from this recycled plastic for the local market.
In the interview Macoumba shares:
- How he transformed himself from a manager in the corporate world to a social entrepreneur and the head of a waste management company
- How he entered the field of waste management after he had the idea to help transform an NGO into a sustainable enterprise
- And how Proplast Industrie is trying to close the loop and build a circular economy model by not only recycling collected plastic but by also offering the products made from the recycled material at its collection points
He also talks about the challenges him and his team faced in building up Proplast and what his advice for young people in Senegal is.
There is a lot of good stuff in this interview and we hope you enjoy learning from Macoumba as much as we did.
And now, without further ado, enter Macoumba Diagne…
