This latest edition of eco@africa comes from the Global Media Forum in Bonn, and covers topics as diverse as recycling, butterflies and coastal erosion.
Concern over plastic pollution is gathering momentum at a startling pace in the UK. But behind headline-grabbing gestures from government, citizens are taking the problem into their own hands.
China is cleaning up. The country was once the world's biggest hub for recycling electronics. But as it bans trash imports, it may be driving some recyclers out of business.
France has floated the idea of slapping labels on products like electronics to tell consumers how long they will last, and how easily they can be recycled. But would such schemes actually inspire greener choices?
Join us for a very special 100th show! We discover a community gardening project, visit Africa's largest wind farm, get up close with chimpanzees and taste a drinking straw that's good enough to eat.
