Plastic Won’t Reach the Beach

Plastic Won’t Reach the Beach aims to reduce plastic pollution, create jobs for underprivileged youth, stimulate entrepreneurship, and offer schools teaching material tailored to the issues of the region. The projects will produce alternatives for plastic and recycle plastic waste as a stepping stone for the comprehensive development of the Western Rural Area of Sierra Leone.

The Sierra Leone School Green Club (SLSGC) has organized agricultural projects, mitigate climate change actions, and advocacy against the use of fossil fuel. A grant from Ocean Conservancy has enabled it to start a plastic recycling project, to lease a plot near a vocational training institute and to install two containers to store tools safely.

This crowdfunding campaign aims to finance machinery to process collected plastic waste into building material for the fast growing population of the area and purchase of a shredder and an extrusion machine in order to produce planks, beams and poles from recycled plastic waste.

We will be planting and maintaining 4,000 additional tree crops and other commercial trees. The contract has just been awarded to us by The Ministry of Environment in Sierra Leone.
