Nigeria generates huge amounts of plastic waste, and according to the 2017 Ocean Atlas report, Nigeria is ranked number 11 in the world for plastic pollution, posing health risks to citizens and causing environmental damage.
A school in Nigeria is accepting plastic bottles instead of school fees from parents. African Clean-Up Initiative and WeCyclers are two organizations working with Morit International School in Ajegunle, Lagos, for the project.
the Ajegunle district in Lagos has three million residents, making it one of the most densely populated slums in the county. The Recycle Pay project has not only helped clean up the area, but it has also made access to education easier.
