Initiatives de Développement Stratégique (IDS) is an NGO in solidarity and international cooperation. In 2011, at Bobo Dioulasso (western Burkina Faso), IDS identified a nonprofit that manufactured loincloths from recycled plastic bags. Having worked for many years in Ouagadougou on household refuse management, IDS wanted to transpose this recycling experience in cooperation with the garbage collectors, weavers and seamstresses in an outlying district of the capital. The idea excited the local craftsmen who create fabrics from recycled plastics. They decided to join the project, which was launched in 2012.
