A decade ago, Rwanda became an environmental pioneer by banning plastic bags and packaging – inspiring other African nations to follow suit.
A year ago, Kenya banned plastic bags and introduced the toughest rules in the book to punish anyone caught making, selling or using them. Have these measures worked?
The city of Antigua said the measure was "in the national interest" and to boost the historic city's conservation efforts. Citizens will have six months to dispose of their plastic products prior to implementation.
On this week's eco@africa, we meet a true hero of environmental activism, discover underwater gardens in Kenya and visit Rwanda a decade after its plastic ban.
On this week's eco@africa, we shop at a Food Assembly in Germany, see how Lake Victoria's water hyacinths can be used as fertilizer and visit a chimpanzee orphanage in Liberia. Check out the show for this and much more.
