A decade ago, Rwanda became an environmental pioneer by banning plastic bags and packaging – inspiring other African nations to follow suit.
On this week's Eco Africa, we're looking at how a plastic bag ban in Rwanda has sparked other recycling ideas, a solar drying tent in Nigeria and pioneering stores that are taking a stand against plastic waste.
A plan to ban single-use plastic products such as disposable plates and straws has been agreed. EU member states and the EU parliament still have to give the provisional agreement the go-ahead.
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?
On this week's eco@africa, the fight to save an endangered frog in South Africa, eco-soap in Rwanda, a floating trash can, and ambitious reforestation in Rwanda. All this and much more!
