PLASTIC WASTE MANAGEMENT
An estimated 8 million tonnes of plastics is released yearly into the ocean leading to degradation of marine habitat which eventually affects aquatic animals and eventually cause poverty and harm to millions of people.
Only 4% of plastic waste is recycled in Africa. Lagos, Nigeria is at the heart of Africa's plastic waste problem. Save Our Needy initiates projects such as "Plastics for Change" which leads to the sustainable management of plastics waste. We take community action for waste management which involves collection, sorting, recycling and developing innovative ideas for the reduction of plastic waste in Lagos, Nigeria. Our ideas and solutions create employment for mostly unemployed women and youths, and promote environmental sanitation.
Girls are trained to be leaders and entrepreneurs at our teenage workshops.
