Commune of Zanguera without plastic waste

Getting in touch

Togo is experiencing an environmental and health crisis due to the increase in plastic waste. Lomé emits around 250,000 tonnes of household waste per year. Each inhabitant produces an average of 0.6 kg of waste per day. This plastic waste takes hundreds of years to degrade and causes serious damage to biodiversity. In response to this problem, we have launched the Zanguera Commune without plastic waste project to maintain biodiversity and create jobs in this commune of 400,000 inhabitants located to the northwest of Lomé. To achieve this, we collect waste on a regular basis and offer alternative solutions to citizens. We have opened a zero waste shop and defined pilot households and schools that implement the ecological transition as a model to follow.
