It is a fact that plastic waste is a big threat to our world. This is because it is used at a high rate in our daily lives. While some countries have made success in banning the use of plastic bags and the use of plastic, Nigeria is still one of the countries with a higher usage percentage. It is used for packaging almost everything. With the growing population daily, the number of plastic waste found on dump sites, roadsides and gutters/drainage systems is alarming. It’s our duty and the duty of our leaders in the position to create a sustainable environment for generations to come.
This is why we are contributing to reducing the growing rate of plastic waste in the environment by building our training center out of pet bottles. The center being made out of plastic is situated in Imafon community, Igbatoro Road, Akure, Ondo state. So far, we have used over 8000 pet bottles and we need more than 10,000 more to complete the 35 by 27 feet building.
We are committed to seeing a clean and healthy environment. Let’s work together to “Beat Plastic Pollution”.
