Monrovia is blessesed with a long coastline with beautiful but highly polluted beaches. We intend to focus on marine plastic pollution across the beaches in Monrovia. Roughly 25 percent of the waste generated in Monrovia is plastic. Out of the over 400 tons of waste produced daily, only about 33 percent is collected and disposed in the landfill. This implies that close to 70 tons of plastic waste is disposed openly in the environment daily. This causes enormous pollution, flooding and massive damage to the marine environment.
Our aim is to organise and event that will collect 5 tons of plastic which shall be processed for recycling.
