Zero waste

Since 2015, The Centre for Zero Waste & Development in Africa (CZWDA) has been implementing the kicking the bags out campaign to push for a total ban on single-use plastics in Zambia. This campaign is aimed at awareness-raising and engagement within communities, students, organisations, parliamentarians and government leaders to address the urgent need of putting in place a law on the ban of single use plastic bags in Zambia and the rest of Africa.
