Innovative Kenyan Woman Turns Plastic Waste into Building Materials

Gjenge Makers turns plastic waste from commercial facilities into bricks that can hold twice the weight threshold of concrete.Based in Nairobi, Kenya, the innovative company hopes to tackle the huge plastic waste pollution problem in the country. A study by the National Environmental Management Agency (NEMA) discovered plastic in over 50% of cattle’ stomachs in Kenya’s urban areas.

To remedy this, the Kenyan government prohibited the use of plastic bags beginning in 2017. They also enacted a ban on single-use plastic in protected natural areas in 2020.Unfortunately, commercial waste continues to cause problems in Kenya since the bans only apply to consumers.
