TakaTaka Solutions is introducing the concept of recycling to Nairobi, a country that previously has simply discarded its mountains of waste in illegal dumps. It’s a plan that benefits the environment and the people.
Every day almost 9,000 tons of garbage accumulate in Kinshasa. The Congolese capital does not have a functioning garbage collection system. Consequences for the health of the "Kinois" are catastrophic.
Less plastic-wrapped produce, more recycling, doing away with plastic straws and cutlery: Germany's Environment Ministry has issued a plan to make the country less of a "throwaway society."
Big companies including Coca-Cola and Danone have signed a new global commitment to tackle the plastic waste problem. Mere greenwashing, or can such pledges make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution?
On this week's eco@africa, meet the man leading Africa’s delegation to the COP 24 climate summit in Poland. Plus: the solar suitcases lighting up Kenyan classrooms and the invention bringing biogas to Moroccan farmers.
