NEW LIFE TO PLASTIC

Waste Management System

New Life to Plastic stems from field research conducted in 2016 in the Nairobi’s slum of Kibera (Kenya), where waste and plastic pollution are major challenges to sustainable urban development. The project aims to reduce plastic consumption and production while educating local communities to segregate waste materials at household level consistently with the reduce-reuse-recycle principles. 

As a second phase of our work, we advocate for sustainable recovery and disposal of plastics to prevent ocean plastic pollution in Zanzibar (Tanzania) in a coordinated effort between tourism activities, local communities, and municipal waste management services. In particular, we promote environmental education and activism through workshops and network building both in Italy and on site.
