Recycling waste plastic at Lake Victoria shores

Lake Victoria, the world's largest fresh water lake at the heart of Africa is chocking on more than 500 tonnes of waste #plastic per day. Namirembe fishing village collects more than 2.5 tonnes of plastic per week. This is because the currents sweeps plastics from neighboring countries of Tanzania, flow through Kagera River into the large waterbody. The custom solution was to collect stack it in the foundation and build houses on top. The other is ofcourse open air burning which has a great deal of side effects on the body and environment. According to AirQo Africa discovered in Uganda, more than 22,000 people die because of air pollution. #EcoBrixs, a plastic recycling plant came to change the narrative by buying waste plastic and recycling it. This reduced the amount of waste plastics on the lakeshore but also created income opportunity to the Resource Recover Agents. #opportunity #people #change #recycling #environment #africa #water #water

                    Great initiative. Also, if a solution on how to deter the waste from the neighboring country could be found, that'd be better.
