A damning report by Clean Up Kenya and Nairobi Recyclers places The Coca-Cola Company at the center of the plastic waste pandemic in Kenya.
In an interview with a prominent Kenyan less-plastics campaigner, Betterman Musasia shares his thoughts on the proposed global plastic treaty.
Despite a lot of optimism, it is unlikely that a Global Plastics Treaty will solve the problem of plastic pollution in the medium term.
Clean Up Kenya and Nairobi Recyclers have unveiled a prototype of a 'Tower of Plastics' which we plan to build in Nairobi to raise awareness on plastic packaging pollution in the country and pressure the Ministry of Environment and Forestry to address this problem.
This campaign is meant to highlight the plight of Kenyan informal waste pickers and push for a government-led process to address the problem.
