African Dream: Lorna Rutto recycles plastic for profits

There is a conference being held in Nairobi, Kenya on plastic waste. This is a great example of how some Africans are fighting back against plastic pollution in their countries…

Lorna Rutto is an entrepreneur who founded Ecopost, a Nairobi-based company that recycles plastic waste. Her company has recycled 1.5 million kilogrammes of plastic waste to date.

Five years ago she gave up her job deciding, instead, to pursue her dream of ridding Nairobi of plastic waste through recycling. Without much experience and money, many thought her ambition crazy. She told the BBC how she made her dream a reality and shared advice for aspiring entrepreneurs.
