Giving Nature a Voice – Plastics Are Forever
Season 02 Episode 01
Kenya’s marine life is increasingly chocked by plastic debris. Flip lops, plastic bottles and nets clutter the white sand beaches, entangling and killing marine animals, birds and fish. In Watamu, local clean up crews collect the plastic and sort it for re-use.
In Malindi, a recycling plant turns the waste into sidewalks, street signs and even beams for an experimental dhow under construction in Lamu. Will the world’s strictest ban on plastic bags begin to turn the tide what’s cluttering our coastline?
