THE DOMINO FOUNDATION has three recycle swop shops operating
within a number of impoverished communities throughout the Western Cape. Our vision is to uplift the communities living in informal settlements through using recyclable goods as a means of exchange for basic necessities. IN A NUT-SHELL: Community members collect recyclable materials and bring them to the Recycle Swop Shop. Items are weighed and a corresponding value is given in tokens (cashless). These tokens are then used within the shop to purchase basic necessities, clothing, hygiene items and more. We have seen a reduction in the number of recyclable items entering landfill sites and the beautifying of the surrounding communities through the
collection of waste. Communities are healthier and happier with a positive impact on the environment.
The #DominoRiders will raise much needed funds for THE DOMINO
FOUNDATION RECYCLE SWOP SHOP to continue to provide this service to the community and allow us to reach our dream of opening new swop shops within local townships.
