ANDY BOWNDS

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, has grown 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.

Outside of Eco Brixs, Andy is a professional clown, Nile beer drinker and father to 2 cats. He is also working on his first dystopian novel which, unsurprisingly, involves plastic. 

GEE ELLIOTT

Founder and Chair of the Trustee Board

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 that enterprise is one of the best way in which to help develop communities, she then went onto establish a microfinance programme alongside Grass Roots Cafe and Deli before Eco Brixs. Prior to life in Uganda, Gee worked in the private equity real estate industry for 5 years where she was responsible for developing relationships with European and U.S. institutional investors for Blackstone and Revcap. Gee graduated with 1st Class Honours in Law from Leeds University.

When Gee isn’t looking at mountains of plastic rubbish, she’s usually found writing her blog with the deluded view of being the next Karen Blixen or eating her body weight in avocados.
