A garbage dump in the capital Kinshasa may seem an odd place for artistic inspiration, but for the band Piscko Crane it is recycled material that has created their unique sound.
On this week's Eco Africa, we watch the band making music from garbage in DR Congo, check out the solar lamps improving education in Rwanda, and visit the fight to save South Africa's endangered native plants.
Electronic music duo Matmos made their latest album using sounds made from plastic waste, like trash bags and even a police riot shield. Plastic Anniversary draws our attention to the terror and beauty of the material.
The use of plastic bags is on the decline in Germany, but the 64% decrease since 2015 doesn't go far enough for Environment Minister Svenja Schulze. Her department has drafted a bill to ban them completely.
Rich countries with good recycling infrastructure hold Southeast Asia responsible for plastic waste polluting the sea. A fact-check shows that's not fair.
