The Magic Bean Foundation.

Plastic packets which may have been destined for the sea or stuck in a tree branch are being turned into sought- after fashionable items and putting food on the table of many Durban women. Beach bags, hats and even pot-plant holders are being fashioned from waste plastic, in a project run by the Magic Bean Foundation. Set up by Glenashley friends Lorraine Evans and Shelley Stievenart, this aims to uplift people using sustainable principles and helping the environment at the same time.
