6 Milestones for 6 Years of Eco Brixs

This month we're celebrating Eco Brixs' 6th Birthday! Since 2017, we've worked with over 3,000 Plastic Collectors in Uganda to clean up over 770 tonnes of plastic waste. That's the equivalent of 32,340,000 plastic bottles!

We've carried out this work by creating green jobs for marginalised communities, empowering young people, women and people with disabilities to play a central role in tackling Uganda's huge plastic problem.

To celebrate 6 years of Eco Brixs, here are 6 special milestones of impact that have been achieved on our journey so far...
