Une initiative de Habitat Africa

Présentation de l'initiative

Habitat Africa wishes to recycle waste plastic bottles found generally in landfills and waster ways (gutters, river valleys etc.) into building units (blocks, pavement stones etc). This because if they are left there, they shall be incinerated and leading to air pollution (furans and dioxins) or shall block water ways causing floods.

The NGO is willing to set up a network to collect, channel, sort, clean, shred, smelt, and mould into various shapes and sizes for building. This shall be done in the recycling unit. This project promotes both environmental protection and sustainable development. Besides, youth employment will be encouraged by getting them involved in envrionnemental protection. An awareness campaign will b held to keep the local population alert about the ills of waste plastic pollution to the environment.
