New Plastics Economy in Kenya


The New Plastics Economy in Kenya partnership aims to curtail the country’s overall plastic waste by first improving how much waste is collected, and then transforming waste materials into recycled products for commercial use.

Investing in Impact

P4G has invested US $80,000 in this partnership. 

The partnership will first work with plastic producers to better label and trace plastic bottles, and then work with manufacturers increase the uptake in recycled plastic materials. The partnership will also spur innovation and research in plastic waste reuse, demonstrating the economic viability of plastic recycling.
