EcoPost is Recycling Plastic Waste Into Business Opportunity in Kenya

Saw this really inspiring business initiative in Kenya called “EcoPost”.

EcoPost uses 100 % recycled plastics to make aesthetic, durable and environmentally friendly plastic lumber for use in applications ranging from fencing to landscaping.

By starting this business they are actually tackling issues that in the context of Kenya are quite important such as plastic pollution, urban waste management and deforestation. As a business, they are able to create employment and also at the same time because of the sustainable way they are proceeding, they are actually doing their small part to create an environmentally friendly Kenya.
