The SwitchersFund presents the #BagToTheFuture Awards, a collaboration between SCP/RAC and VeryNile to tackle the use of single use plastic bags in Egypt

26th July 2019

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to bring your innovative ideas for our brand new challenge #BagToTheFuture. Join us on making a positive impact on the environment by proposing ways to limit, prevent, replace, reduce or improve the use of single-use plastic bags. The challenge is aimed at finding and fostering the use affordable and convenient alternatives to single-use plastic bags and to provide economic impact, preferably to disadvantaged groups, as well promoting their daily, long-term use. This way we will also be promoting business innovation in Egypt!

 

The #BagToTheFuture challenge is awarded by the SwtichersFund an initiative led by SCP/RAC and VeryNile, a dynamic Business Support Organization based in Egypt and it invites entrepreneurs, individuals, organisations or SMEs to identify and commercialize their solutions. The challenge is divided into two awards for solutions that will ultimately complement one another:

‘Responsible Choices’

Rewarding the best idea or project tackling the way in which we use and consume single use plastic bags
