Trash is Cash


Thanks, Jasmine, for sharing a link to this amazing video made by Zuh-d and Wafalme & Makia, a group of kids from the slums of Nairobi.

Check the remix here. According to the caption on YouTube, they won a Positive Climate award from MTV for this video. Not surprising given the catchy and uplifting chourus: “No more Pollution (trash is cash!)/This my solution (trash is cash!)”

Side note: In two weeks I’ll be touring Kabira slum with another amazing group of slum kids. The trip is day-job focused, but I predict some urban trash stories and photos will be popping up here. Stay tuned.
