After seeing the negative impact of plastic waste in Uganda he decided to conduct research into possible solutions. In the process of researching, he engaged with major recycling players in Uganda Plastic Recycling Industries (PRI). PRI were shortly taken over by Coca Cola which allowed Andrew to build a relationship with these corporate giants and learn the ins and outs of recycling in Uganda. After one years of planning he established Masaka Recycling Initiative, which over just two years, has grown into Eco Brixs, offering various support services for the community.

Johnson has lived in Masaka for 11 years. He has worked in various NGO’s in Masaka, including the Uganda Marathon and Banda Lodge Social Enterprise. He started working with Andrew Bownds through the Uganda Marathon in 2016 and now works full time as collection manager for Eco Brixs. Johnson is the longest-serving member of staff at Eco Brixs and has undertaken various safety training and management training from partners PRI.
