Efforts to recycle aluminium and foil in this country have led to 24,000 trees being planted in climate change-affected parts of Africa.
In a scheme led by Alupro and Tree Aid, a tree is planted for every tonne recycled, making a significant contribution to the livelihoods of those that depend on the forest for survival.
With the initiative said to be 20% ahead of target, it is hoped that 50,000 will have been planted by September this year.
Five village communities in the Gabio Forest, Burkina Faso have been the main beneficiaries, with free specially-grown seeds for mango, cashew, baobab and acacia trees all given to villagers.
Climate change is having a devastating effect in the sub-Saharan drylands of west Africa, with trees dying earlier, bush fires increasing and food becoming more scarce as a result.
Bristol-based Tree Aid has a team in Ouagadougou which is working with local communities, helping them to adapt the way they manage ancient forests in the face of these challenges.
