This Nigerian Artist Turns Trash Into Art
Marcella Akpojotor knows how to be resourceful. The artist, based in Nigeria, uses Akara fabric scraps for her artwork.

"Because I go there and they have someone who collects them so they are also keeping it and the environment is safe. Instead of throwing them, I am repurposing them," Akpojotor said.
