Climate change mitigation through glass and plastic recycling

ECOCV alongside more than 2500 delegates from 53 African and 20 other countries participated at the first IUCN Congress of Protected Areas of Africa in Kigali, Rwanda (#IUCN #APAC2022). Here we presented our work on recycling of glass and plastic, the establishment of Ecocenters, sustainable finance for rural communities and climate change mitigation in Santiago Island. We created the first of such kind community based recycling system, that proved to be successful with the significant reduction of glass and plastic waste in two communities.
