Proyecto Titi in Columbia turns trash to treasure in an effort to protect their local endangered Tamarin Monkey population. The organization collects plastic bags for use in eco-mochilas (bags) - the bags are cleaned, cut and woven into totes and durable reusable shopping bags. This project has recycled million plastic bags and provides an income to the village living around the forest who rely less on forest resourced and more on earned money. Plastic bottles are used in a similar project which prevents litter while paying locals to collect the bottles. Bottles are chipped and remelted into fence posts which farmers and ranchers can use in place of young trees which saves the monkey's habitat.
