Collecting and recycling 5,000 tonnes of plastic and growing thanks to you support
Like in many countries, waste management in Kenya is largely unregulated, unmanaged, and unsafe. A colossal 4,000 tonnes of waste is produced in Nairobi every day, 20% of which is plastic. Of the waste generated by the city, only 20-30% is recycled, reused, or transformed into material that can be of economic value. On top of the environmental impacts, overflowing waste dumps pose a humanitarian risk, with air, water, and soil contamination leading to severe health issues for local communities.
