Manar Ramadan

Thanks to Oxfam, we realized the three main Banlastic activities.
– Manar Ramadan, Co-founder of Banlastic Egypt

Manar Ramadan is the co-founder of Banlastic, a social enterprise dedicated to banning single-use plastic in Egypt by offering sustainable alternatives and spreading awareness through workshops, beach cleanups, and green events. The idea behind Banlastic came to Manar while she was studying in India for her master’s degree in Sustainable Development. Inspired by her studies Manar was determined to bring the idea of Banlastic to life. Thanks to Oxfam’s support, Manar was able to establish Banlastic’s main objectives: develop alternative solutions for single-use plastic, create awareness of the dangers of plastic pollution through educational training, and work with policymakers to develop policies that help the ban of single-use plastic.

Some of the core values we have at Banlastic is to provide 100% Egyptian-made products that are environmentally friendly and also to provide products made by Egyptian women.
