Management Team


Andy Bownds Eco Brixs CEO.jpeg

Founder and CEO

After working all his professional life in the charity sector in London, Andy moved to Uganda in 2015 to help establish the Uganda Marathon Foundation. After seeing the negative impact of plastic waste in Uganda, he started to research possible solutions and connect with industry players before establishing Masaka Recycling Initiative, which over just two years, grew into Eco Brixs. Prior to life in Uganda, Andy worked at management level for 5 years with London Cyrenians and graduated with BA Hons from Winchester University.


Gee (Georgina) Elliott, the UK Trustee Chair and Founder of Eco Brixs


Gee moved to Uganda in 2015 to head Opportunity Africa, a philanthropic organisation focused on sustainable development through education and enterprise. With a love for Uganda and a strong belief in enterprise, she went onto establish Grass Roots Cafe and Deli before Eco Brixs. Alongside Eco Brixs, Gee is Head of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) for Revcap, a European real estate investment firm. Gee graduated with 1st Class Honours in Law from Leeds University and holds the CFA in ESG Investing.

UK Charity Trustees


Anjana Eco Brixs Trustee


Anjana previously lived in Masaka, Uganda, for 2 years, so is familiar with the home of Eco Brixs. During this time she worked for a social enterprise that focuses on environmentally sustainable construction.

A year after leaving Uganda, she decided to renew her connection with the Ugandan community by joining the Eco Brixs' UK board. She's thrilled once again to be involved in recycling, having been involved in anti-plastic activism since high school and holding a master's degree in environmental engineering from Imperial College London.


Outside of work, you can find Anjana testing new recipes on friends or speaking to her houseplants!


Martin Worster Eco Brixs Trustee

Vice-Chair of the UK Board

Martin studied Geography at Cambridge University and is a former teacher of 20 years, who also has extensive experience in charity and international development.

The revelation came for Martin when he accepted a teaching post in Nairobi, Kenya, and he and his wife decided to spend 5 months travelling there overland. Infact, they didn't return for 2 1/2 years! From there, Martin's long relationship with Africa continued - he accepted a job as Country Director in Zimbabwe for Students Partnership Worldwide in 1998, at the sharp end of the fight against the spread of HIV/AIDS. Since then, he founded the Amalthea Trust, which sends NHS engineers from the UK to Sub-Saharan African countries to repair and maintain medical equipment in hospitals/clinics, of which he is now the Program Director based in the UK.
