Lagos Clean Beach Project

THE STORY:

We have gathered a group and picked up a 20' shipping container amount of plastic bottles off one of the Lagos beach shoreline and surrounding areas (and trust me when I say what we collected still didn't put a dent in what is still left to collect from the beach); since Nigeria does not have a recycle plant or recycling system, we had to outsource a recycling company to take are recycle collections. We need to ship our container of plastic bottles to another country for recycling and reuse.

We need funding to have the container shipped off to the outsourced recycling plant. Any amount you can render would be helpful to get the container of plastic bottles to where they need to go; we can not let the container just sit idle at the beach where the plastic bottles were collected.

If this first container is a success we can continue to ship our recyclables off to other recycling plants until we can campaign to raise recycling awareness and raise enough money to build a recycling plant here in Lagos.

But, for now sending the plastic waste off to be recycled is better than seeing it on the streets and the beaches of Lagos serving no purpose but being non-biodegradable waste...
