Plastic straws – we use them once and throw them away. But a women's initiative in Uganda is breathing new life into discarded straws by turning them into hats, bags and bracelets.
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.
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.
Join us in western Uganda and see how to turn elephant dung into paper, see how scientists are trying to save Madagascar’s lemurs and learn about upcycling waste from the Mediterranean. All this and more!
On this week's eco@africa, we see how activists in Ghana are regenerating areas destroyed by gold mining, an exercise bike that creates electricity and how Rwanda is tackling its e-waste. All this and more!
