The Lagos Chronicles | Recycling Plastics for Good! “My Africa Is” Presents “WeCyclers”



We’re very excited to be part of the 1st episode of “The Lagos Chronicles” . In this first episode, My Africa Is talks to  Bilikiss Abiola, one of the founders of WeCyclers. WeCyclers is an organization that recycles plastics which would ordinarily end up in the gutters and streets of Lagos.

It’s very easy to think that recycling is not possible in Lagos especially with the amount of debris and waste we see littering the streets of Lagos. My Africa Is finds out how Bilikiss and her team make it work.

Watch the video here and find out more about the efforts of WeCyclers.

    That’s what’s wrong with Nigeria. Everything is somebody else’s problem. We shouldn’t be saying keep it up! The question to ask is how can I help them grow so Naija can be better….

      Your comment is based off the assumption that I am actually not doing something to help. Because it is not on BellaNaija doesn’t mean something isn’t being done dear. Observe a bit of calm, all I have done is commend someone’s work. Truth be told, we all need encouragement in matters that concern Nigeria dear, anyway it comes is usually appreciated. No harm done.

    The best job created in recent times in Nigeria. The nature of our refuse changed without us inventing ways of dealing with it.
    It is not only bottles but styroform plates and cups, plastic spoons, forks and knives,foil papers, thins and plastic straws.
    I konw I have not helped but

    The best job created in recent times in Nigeria. The nature of our refuse changed without us inventing ways of dealing with it.
    It is not only bottles but Styrofoam plates and cups,plastic spoons,forks and knives, foil papers, thins and plastic straws, polythene bags. Gone are the days when things were wrapped in leaves , papers and other biodegradable materials.
    I know I have not helped but at least I do not liter and always preach to people around me not to .
    Good job!

    Finally! I’m thankful for this…moving back here, I’ve felt so guilty about throwing plastic in the trash when I know there are better options for the earth and our health. I’m def going to that website.
