Key of Green

As part of our ongoing look at recycling around the world, we’ve looked a little harder America’s accumulating plastic waste. On average, Americans (all 325 million of us) throw away 35 billion plastic bottles a year. That’s 185 pounds of plastic per American, per year.

Full Circle Africa

In Sierra Leone there is no infrastructure for recycling. In fact, “waste management,” as we understand it in the U.S., is nearly non-existent there. In their homeland, 70% of waste is plastic and more than 50,000 plastic bags are discarded daily. It is not hard to imagine the negative impacts of such unchecked waste on [...]

In some parts of Africa, plastic bottles are burned in cooking fires, which exposes people and the environment to many dangerous toxins that are emitted when they are burned, such as polyvinyl chlorides (PVCs) which [...]
