Massive quantities of plastic waste end up in our seas and are eaten by fish. A simple innovation is helping to collect the waste before it enters the oceans. A Dutch startup has created a curtain of rising air bubbles to intercept plastic in water.
This week on Eco Africa we see how to make concrete out of cassavas peels, look into bubbles that can intercept plastic in rivers to prevent it from reaching the oceans and follow an environmental activist in Uganda.
This week, we meet conservationists protecting an endangered bird in South Africa, visit a solar-powered school in Nigeria and discover how one man fought the odds to bring clean, safe water to Kenya's Kibera slum.
On this week's eco@africa, we learn about a solar powered water purification system that can process dirty water while charging phones and see how permaculture is being used in Kenya to restore the environment.
