Nairobi lacks an organised system of waste management leading to wanton pollution by plastic waste which litters streets and open fields.

EcoPost Ltd is involved in manufacture of fencing posts from waste plastic. Our model, recognized by the UN Millenium Campaign under MDG 7, is based on the triple bottom line which considers environmental, social and economic factors. The initiative was launched based on the failure by authorities to manage Nairobi's waste.
