Good Demen Haiti Creates Art from Recyclables

The Ministry of Tourism (MOT) has contracted with volunteer group, Good Demen Haiti (GDH), to provide Carnival costumes for 2013. The members, at-risk youth, design and assemble dresses, hats, and accessories from recycled plastic bottles.

Group leader, Gumo Lormeus, teaches how to deconstruct plastic bottles and create plastic flowers in a five-step process.

MOT has put in an order for 400 whistles and 200-each hats and dresses, to be made from plastic materials.
