This week, we find eco inspiration in Kenya’s recycled pencils and the Berlin restaurant serving up food that was headed for the trash. Plus, will Zulu warriors switch to fake fur to save the leopard?
Join us this week on eco@africa for exciting environmental stories from around Africa and Europe. First up, we’re in Kenya to meet the entrepreneurs sketching out a greener future with pencils made from recycled newspapers.
In Germany, we disocover a very different project saving reources headed for the bin – a restaurant serving up food waste.
And we find out how German children are being encouraged to start thinking about environmental protection early in life, by playing outdoors and developing an affinity for the forest.
In Nigeria, we tune in to the radio drama encouraging better waste management. And in Finland, we visit the world’s first facility to permanently lock away the toxic legacy of nuclear power.
Plus, how Zulu warriors are being persuaded to adopt fake fur for their ceremonial dress to ensure the survival of the African leopard.
